Summary
  • The promise of always-on connections and data transfer speeds of up to 140 times those of a standard 56Kbps modem have instilled a craving for DSL in a large segment of the population. However, poorly orchestrated installations, limited availability, and often unreliable service have introduced a new breed of frustration to the booming Internet access market. Phone companies, service providers, and DSL line conditioners/​installers, must orchestrate their efforts to bring DSL to a home or business, causing scheduling problems and confusion from the outset. Once connected, the service can crash for various reasons, and without expensive service guarantees, there is little consumers can do but wait.
