If the above is correct then why is unlimited DSL cheaper than cable in the rest of the world ie. US Canada and UK?

i'm not sure it's really all that cheaper -- comcast cable, for example, gives you up to 6mbit/sec down for $56.95 in san francisco. speakeasy dsl gives you up to 6mbit down/768 up for $99.95/mo. their lowest package available in most areas is 1.5mbit down/384 up costs $49.95. shaw cable in calgary (alberta, canada) has its cheapest package (5mbit down) at can$31.20/mo. smartnet dsl in calgary costs can$29.95 for 3mbit down/800 up.

things are different in the uk because they have adsl2, and you can find packages for up to 16mbit down. it's also a smaller and denser country.

if you have counterexamples, i'd like to see them.
