Default Are there still a lot of DSL services?


It seems like less these days since phone companies don't want them
anymore like in my areas. :/

Thank you in advance.

Yes, there is. Both direct and indirect.

My parents can't get FiOS so they are still on Verizon ADSL. That's a
direct use.

An indirect use use provides VDSL. An apartment complex receives coaxial or
fiber based content. In a CO of the building is a matrix of DSLAMs for each
apartment which uses POTs wiring to the apartments. Due to the relatively
short distance between a building's CO and the apartment furthest away, very
high speed DSL can be provided. This is less expensive and easier than
running FTTP or Coax to each apartment because the POTs is already in place.

As a transmission line, speed is a function of distance. The further away
one is to the CO, the slower the speed. So the inverse is true and that's
why VDSL is an indirect method used in apartment complexes.

I'm still using DSL, with a max download speed of 6 Mbps. AT&T provides the
wire and central equipment to EarthLink, and EarthLink provides the product to
me. Had it for years! Very pleased with it. Faster would be nice, but
distance to the CO is an issue, and I'm not willing to pay cable rates. We
can watch live video feeds at our current speed.

Friend of mine has it too, but with a 1.5 Mbps feed.
