There are several people with pending DSL orders and others thinking about DSL, and I wanted you all to be aware of something that is happening. Covad is re-working their offering, as far as I know now this only involves the "Consumer Class" services. But basically, the circuit speeds are being increased significantly (almost doubled) for I believe the same amount of money. But we are having a difficult time getting information right now. Circuits that intially qualified at the old speeds have changed, and we're trying to straighten this mess out now. I apologize to those of you whose order was delayed, but the end result should be more speed for the same money. Some numbers that have been casually tossed around sound as if overall pricing may have come down too, but web site hasn't been updated and I haven't been able to get the new pricing info except for very casual mention of a few items that I can't take as official without some confirmation. We are also considering connecting to GTE/US West. It is, in my opinion technically inferior, although I understand now GTE is offering CIR's on thier DSL circuits (Committed Information Rate, basically they guarantee that at least this CIR thruput will be available). No such guarantee from US West yet (and I don't expect one, except maybe after QWest/Duetch Telephone gets done with them), but a lot of people have made it clear to me that pricing is everything so I'm looking into this possibility again. Our router equipment here is capable of both ATM and Frame Relay so we have the capability of talking to either network.
