So, I currently have dial-up and would like to get DSL, but they say that we're out of range.
I've read where someone asked to be signed up anyway even though he was out of range and bought a DSL modem and it worked. The explanation being that, since DSL works through phone lines, they can still send it to you, but it gets weaker over distance and they might not be able to offer the speed that they say they can. Is this true? Should I try to do that?
