In my old neighborhood, the lines ran 1,200 feet away from the VRAD, before turning back, such that neighbors farther from the VRAD in "road miles" were actually closer to the VRAD in "wire miles". So don't count on relative distance by the roads.
And that residence had a CO connection, anyway.
You should make a "Prequalification" request in the AT&T Direct forum. If faster DSL (and U-verse is DSL in most areas), they should be able to help.
