We live about 10 miles from the phone company central office, and our DSL performance is terrible.
I know enough about the technology, that I'm being fed from a rural remote terminal equipped a DSLAM, which itself is being fed from the phone company by multiple spanned T1's, all on a copper trunk line back to the central office (2 pairs per T1).
Okay if performance is so horrible on DSL, and I'm paying for 1.5 meg DSL, and the T-1 is 1.5 meg...... it appears I'm already using a 10 mile T-1 but it's just the last mile (literally) that isn't a T-1 to our house.
So, what does it take to just have that 11th mile be a T-1 straight into my house? And can it be done for not much more cost than DSL?
(I think I actually have an old AdTran CSU/DSU lying around somewhere at work, that hasn't been used in five years...)--
