About the only way to know for sure is to wait for the Covad guy to come out
and hook it up. Like I said, mine just sounded like an open line, not dead
as in nothing, but an open line, no sound accept for the nearly inaudiable
background static. The best way to describe it is to pick up up your phone,
and dail a single digit to make the dail tone go away, the sound you hear
next is what I hear when I plug my phone into my IDSL line. BTW - I get
consistent 136-144Kbs. Wish is was faster, but sure beats the hell out of
56K dail up.
