Well, then, I guess you have not seen how the phone switches use the ADSL
Technology to make it longer than 12,000 Feet. Here in Canada, they are
testing it and you can have customers connect to ADSL that are 12,000 Feet
from the Bell's CO. This offers a wider area than Cable Modems and less lag
and problems since the technology is Digital, not like Cable Modem's Analog

I could offer ADSL to customers that are 30 miles away or 5 miles away and
still offer better speeds than Cable modems.
