Mainly just a hardware issue; more servers which are configured for PPPoE than DHCP, so as more and more people sign up for DSL, the DHCP servers tend to run out of room faster than the PPPoE. So, putting new connections on PPPoE helps balance the load out... doesn't mean we have no DHCP room left, but default behavior right now is to fill up the empty room on the PPPoE side first.
Pretty sure its because now you guys are just reselling AT&T where as in California before you had ATM connections to AT&T where you could actually bring the circuits over and be routed through your network using your (dhcp) servers. From what I have seen even in california now you guys just resell AT&T so routing is AT&T (not dslextreme) and no more DHCP.
I have serious doubts that the reason is for what you stated.--
