BTW gdm, what's the distance limits for ADSL2+? I am little over 19k from the CO but 6682ft. from the VRAD. If they put IP-DSLAM into the VRAD I could get DSL service. 6682ft. is too long for Uverse VDSL2.
The difference between IPDSLAM and Vrad is the cards. The Vrads have Video adsl and the IPDSLAM has just adsl cards that provides a longer distance at lower speeds for just internet and maybe VoIP.
