Funny how that works. The telco here (Qwest) swore to me that ?DSL was
not available in my neighborhood. So I contacted another provider who
promptly hooked me up. I asked them about the availability issue; turns
out they rent the lines from Qwest...
It works for me.... And since Qwest is still telling everyone DSL is
not available in my neighborhood, I have the whole loop to myself.
