Is it? shame... one would think that some sort of slow-speed DSL would be
possible even on pots lines very very far from the exchange.... I remember
reading that in Australia Telstra used some ´repeaters´ on the copper lines
allowing DSL to reach distances that were previously thought to be too far
for DSL. Although details about it are a bit foggy on my memory, as I read
about it many years ago.

Needless to say even a 256K always-on ADSL is better thank dial-up....
