Re: IP-DSLAM FAQ

broadbandg, it's on the back-end and what you said is correct. Fiber optic allows them to shorten the loop length. They installed a remote DSLAM in the field to offer you Uverse service. You can have Uverse internet only service up to 24M/3M of your choice at att.com or traditional ADSL2+.
Basically it's this:
CO->Fiber->VRAD(DSLAM)->Copper->Your House.

What you have is FTTN. You won't get FTTH/C like FiOS unless you are in a new-build

You will be getting service to the remote DSLAM in the field. That remote DSLAM is connected to the CO over fiber aggregating all the connections in the neighborhood.
