DSL here topped out at 6 MBps down (instead of the max 12 MBps)...from what I read online that was typical for many markets. I had it for years, but eventually switched to cable broadband for (back at the time) 3x more speed at 1/2 the price. And nearly 3 years ago AT&T's contractor installed underground conduit & then pulled fiber on the main street just outside our development. But AT&T hasn't yet bothered to extend to our neighborhood even though our HOA literally sold BellSouth a right-of-way pre-merger. Guess they don't think they'll have enough takers to make it worth their while.
