at costs cheaper than t-1's (24 phone lines), this is a big deal, except the
other limitations of xdsl (so adroitly expounded upon by Dan), combined with
stability problems (got GTE/Verizon? You may know what I speak of), makes
this a great idea, but it may be a touch early to provide mission critical
services over it.

early adopter, me? yeah, once. but that was like years ago
