What's frustrating is the inability to be sure just where the hell DSL
is available or not at a microlevel. If you want to rent or buy
someplace and try to figure out if DSL is available beforehand, then its
an epic struggle.
Would be nice if there was a truly detailed coverage map, perhaps
running the line test on all their lines and mapping the results would
be difficult, but educational.
