Re: IP-DSLAM FAQ

So they put a Vrad about 1.1 miles down the street from me (which they said is fully functional and on). I had them come out and they were about to put a new drop line into my house, but then they got smart and tested the line before and found out I am too far to get Uverse.

The tech and the line guy said "good thing we checked first, it's time to go to plan B"

They said I would be able to get IP DSLAM which they said goes from the regular telephone box(which is next to the Vrad), through the Vrad, then to my house.

My question is. Being a little over a mile, which seems to be shorter than most people that get IP DSLAM from the reviews I have read; will my speeds still be pretty fast? The tech told me that he's seen people get 12MB at my distance. Is he correct? or is he just sugarcoating it?;

We'll now........ all in all they say I am too far away for anything. I know I am too far away for Uverse; but doesnt 5700FT sound suitable for IP DSLAM? I dont get it
