After viewing this whole thread and having come from a use-to-be
the-great-white-hope "DLEC" I can say that the problem really doesn't lie
with the technology but rather with the self deceptions the IPO-happy
corporate officers told themselves and their investors about how easy it is
to run a carrier and possibly in the outright deceptions of certain "you've
got to use our equipment to use our neat little marketing logo"
manufacturers.  But over all, basic DSL technology has been used for over 15
years by ILECs to provide T1 services over long spans.

I guess I agree taht it should be "People who purchase from unproven
companies to support their Business and whine about it"

I have never had any line problems with my DSL connection. Never had to
have
anyone come out and repair it and its never been down due to a line isssue
and we've had the connection since Jan 2000.

All of the issues have to due with mess-ups by PSINet or Covad. PSINet had
the wrong IP address information in their database and they sent that over
to CAIS when they transferred the account. Thats what started it all.

I have to say that I don't see where DSL is a flawed technology, just that
some of the players in the game are not very good at providing support.

to stay up for weeks/months.

The DSL from work to home has been up 24/7 for about 4 years now without
a
single interruption. Quite different from our PTP T1's which each go
down
regularly.
