Why would anyone purchase dsl to run their business on. Let me guess, the
price was right.

I would call it a proven technology, but a very poor business model.
And xDSL is definately not for mission critical operations. 

x is sometimes "H".

Are you sure you want to say HDSL is not for mission-critical operations?

Setting a trap here?

xDSL, where x = S/H, as a physical carrier (and set of modulation schemes)
is a tried and proven technoligy, often used today by telcos to carry T1s 
over longer spans with less need for repeating equipment.

The model of xDSL internet service (differing from xDSL as a way to carry
T1s), on the other hand....
