You guys really pi$$ me off... not at you, but at !#$%^ SBC. I can look out my back window at the county court house, which is a block from the hub and I have to be a second rate citizen without DSL service! :eck16: The distance is well under 2 miles. !#$%^& I can't have cable either because it is about 800 ft. away.old_nodaker said:Interesting - I live 8 miles from the phone hub in the middle of nowhere. The local (and I mean LOCAL) phone company got me DSL, cost me $15 to install, $44 a month.

ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. ADSL is variation of DSL where one side of data can flow faster than the other. This is why you see the speed ratings like 1.5MB down / 256KB up.thesmartfarmer said:THat is so weird becasue bellsouth states that DSL is not available but AT&T has it? Also what does ADSL mean when compared to DSL?
old nodaker, are you sure you are subscribing to regular DSL?old_nodaker said:The $15 was for the time and material involved in inside the house work. When I signed up, they said I might need a modem for $100, turned out I didn't need one, which I don't understand but didn't argue.

Unless you have a fiber connection to your house, your DSL/Phone line probably will not handle TV. That will change in due time, but for now, it is most likely video is not an option. And since you cant get cable, you'll probably have to mix the various ways you can receive the services.thesmartfarmer said:...........
........ I would like to have my internet, tv, and phone all in one package? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
One of the two companies might be in error whether you can receive DSL service or not, but that's hard to say for sure, as I don't know how the telephone network is configured in your area.thesmartfarmer said:THat is so weird becasue bellsouth states that DSL is not available but AT&T has it? .........
Mow,MowHoward2210 said:Well, as long as it works, then it is a moot point! Still wonder how you get a DSL signal 8 miles out. Maybe they put you on "dry pair" and took all the loads out of your cable pair. Hopefully your scenario will give hope to people who live a ways out.
