No it was absurd because my friend just wanted to run two adsl "modems"
between his office and home on copper. He was told that to do that he
needed to connect to PacBell's ATM backbone, that's whats absurd.
two ADSL modems will not talk to each other back to back on a piece of
wire. If you want to fire up dry-copper connectivity between yourself
and a friend you want some sort of HDSL product; look at the Campus
line at http://www.pairgain.com/ovr_prd.htm
