Question about AT&T ADSL service stations.

Im moving soon and today I went and looked around at the residence im moving to. I noticed that there is a telephone work station? right next door nearly right on the land of the house im moving to and when driving by I noticed a smaller box beside it that says ADSL on it as well as some other things i forgot exactly. I think it may have said spun or spool or somthing like that as well as a few more words i cant remember.

Anyway my question is does anyone know what this box is? Also do you think its a good indication the ill be able to get DSL since its close by? The avaibility on the site shows up to 6mb normal dsl being avaible "not uverse". But i know those checks arent 100%

Is it possible for you to post some photographs of these items? Adding in the city and nearest intersection of two streets might also help.

Well, I have never seen a remote DSLAM with a electric company meter on top of it in central Georgia. But where you are moving to they might do it differently.

I cannot tell what that box is.

Thats a U-Verse VRAD. I have the same exact looking one across the street. And I have U-Verse. It is a remote terminal where fiber is run from the central office, terminates at that box, and from the VRAD to your house is a copper run. They use VDSL2+ on the copper...
heres info on VDSL2+...

BUT basically it means you may qualify for U-Verse services!
