AOL support has never been the greatest, no matter which country you're trying to get it in.
I'd keep calling & try to find someone who understands, but it's possible it may not be in your area. Canada AOL is as you said, limited there & they do not have a large market for dry loop.
Even if your local provider offers it... AOL my not be authorized to resell their dry loop there.--
