Actually, you're wrong.

I suggest you go to www.paradyne.com and do a search for the DSL Sourcebook.
It'll be on the top of the list of hits. Fill out their little form and look
at Chapter 3: DSL Basics. The third page down or so, the section is "HDSL
Enters the scene". It clearly states that HDSL is a 2 circuit system, 4

You are, however, correct in that HDSL can do more than T1 speeds. It can do
E1's as well, and even a little bit faster, up to 1.168mbps per line.
(that's roughly 2.33mbps to make myself clear).

That was my mistake Mike. HDSL is NOT two SDSL lines by definition. It's
just two circuits running symmetric 768k DSL (not SDSL) bonded to form a

Umm, no.  HDSL rides a single pair, and provides more than 1.5Mb.
