Why it is always called DSL in the States I do not know. Possibly it's simply quicker or maybe there's no difference between upload and download rates.
aDSL is great! until the phone bill comes
I wish I could pay for DSL. QWest, my POS telco, doesn't offer it. Dialup is limited to 24K on a good day due to the poor excuse for a phone network they have here. Cable isn't here and won't be for "another year now" (they've been saying that for 3 years). My only option is a low end business class connection that runs me $120 a month. Yeah, I get 1Mbps in both directions, static IPs, etc, so I can run all of my own servers (fun stuff, err, I enjoy it anyway), but I'd rather drop back to a basic ~700k DSL connection for one third the price. You people with your $50/month and under DSL links make me jealous.
