My father is a AT&T customer. He recently called AT&T to see what service was available and was informed that while he didn't currently qualify for DSL it would be available in his area soon.
Now, I know for a fact the closest CO to his area is 13 miles away by road. His area has never had DSL service. Is there any way I can verify that you will indeed be rolling out service to his area anytime in the next year or so?
DSL can be supplied from an RT based DSLAM as well as directly from the CO. Perhaps AT&T is planning to upgrade a nearby RT, or perhaps even offering VRAD supplied U-verse service.
Or perhaps they are talking about wireless LTE based "DSL" service (which is likely to be how AT&T expands coverage in most of its rural areas).

AT&T has announced their long-awaited plan to address the upgrade path for the company's DSL networks. According to AT&T's plan, the company will spend $14 billion on a new network expansion initiative that will include upgrading some current DSL users to U-Verse, but will also involve pushing many DSL users in outlying areas to their LTE network.
