And I think the one that has been using DSM for the longest - about 7 years or so? Can't remember if it kicked off at BellSouth...

Of course, the largest user of this technology is AT&T. Outside U-verse they are one of those DSL providers.

3-6 Mbps DSL providers need to quickly get their rears in gear with this wondrous improvement, or they will lose all their broadband business to the Cablecos.

re: Turning Copper into Gold
It seems you can't go wrong predicting continued life for copper -- certainly, all of us at some point have been guilty of prematurely predicting its death.

re: Turning Copper into Gold
There's no doubt that fiber all the way to the home and business is the future for any location where it's physically possible. But in the meantime, copper appears to have a longer shelf-life than many people would have imagined 5 years ago, when there was a great deal of optimism around widespread FTTH/B rollouts, many of which have not (or hardly) materialized. And the advances in copper line management will continue -- companies such as ASSIA are not going to sit on their hands and consider the job done. Operators are investing in these copper enhancement technologies now, and they're not just doing it for short-term gains...

re: Turning Copper into Gold
These improvements are smart for areas that aren't ready to upgrade their infrastructure but long term, copper speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s isn't going to be able to compete with fiber, which is capable of speeds up to 100 GigE and
some people estimate that will reach 400 GigE.
