Re: Outlaw DSL and watch the US average go sky high

It was a joke. But seriously I can't think of too many circumstances where someone is close enough to a CO or RT but can't get cable HSI. My business is in this situation because our local business park was built before CATV was deployed there in the early 1980's and video wasn't something biz was interested in but residential? Even with DSL, I'm 19.2K 24AWG copper feet from the CO so while I have it as a backup to WiMax, 3.5dB margins means 384-512kbps service on a good day (while I get 10-12Mb from my unlimited use fixed WiMax). I would think that most DSL subs are in a market where they can get cable HSI but perhaps choose DSL because it is frequently cheaper.
