    • ...so I mistakenly thought that I was not receiving incoming calls.

    You actually were not receiving incoming calls, you just didn't know the reason for it.

    I wonder, can you run a 56K Modem on this line? My guess is probably not, but if you could, you'd have a bazarre tunnel if you made a PPP connection.

    I hear that this kind of thing has the traditional phone companies panicking. The competitive pressures are extreme for fat long-haul fiber, so they aren't going to make much from selling more of that, but their bread and butter, end users buying long distance might suddenly disappear. This may help to explain yesterday's FCC ruling. These phone companies are going to have to get into DSL big time if they are to survive in their present configuration.

    My cable MODEM runs about ~2MB/s down and >350 KB/s up right now. I think this may be because there are so few customers in my area. I can see demand for broadband soaring now...
