DSL (was shopping for NOCs)

I've heard a couple of different reasons for
the poor performance of residential DSL:

1.  Other types of DSL running in your bundle
of copper. (Say, you have aDSL for your home
use, but the Telco uses PairGain's DSL to
distribute their T1 services.)

2.  A lot of the equipment is still WAY TOO
NEW for Telco use.

I'm sure there is a murder of training
and traffic engineering issues that still
need to be worked out...
