BDT's DSL product (as well as all of our competitors) has a distance limitation due to
Bell Atlantic's provisioning. The distance Bell Atlantic will deliver a DSL
qualified loop is 18,000 ft. (about 3 miles). This means that when you are
using the mapping program to determine the distance between you and the
co-location, 3 miles is a good benchmark but not a guarantee. The length of the
copper wire between the co-location and the prospect's office may be more or
less than the driving route reflected in the mapping program, so a definitive
distance rule can not be given.
Please be aware of limitations when setting
expectations for our DSL product. The key message is that DSL is a
distance/speed sensitive technology, and availability of service can only be
determined after we order the line with Bell Atlantic.
In the near future, Bell Atlantic has committed to providing BDT with
qualified lines to provision DSL at further distances. Exact dates are not
set at this time. Bell Atlantic is working to get their processes in place
to be able to deliver this service. When Bell Atlantic makes these loops
available to us, you will be notified.
