I was THAT close to having DSL -- the DSL modem was installed and the
Covad guy seemed quite happy. But then he clouded up. The
Speedstream's little light was flashing. He called the office, got the
diagnosis that I was 14,400 from the CO, and then informed me that my
hopes for DSL were dead.
So how much give is there in getting DSL around this distance, say if I
try another provider, a different Covad tech, or hassle Pac Bell for a
cleaner line (although Covad said the line was clean.)?
BTW, the Covad folks I've dealt with all give a different story on the
subject of the distance they will provide to. Answers have ranged from
9,000 to 15,000 feet.
