Phone Co DSL not serving all areas

Something needs to be done about the phone cos that are refusing to serve all customers. In many cases the lines can not support DSL but they are not spending the money to install the digital switches.

AT&T is installing fiber to new remote CO units that serve rural areas but they are not installing the digital switches to provide DSL. They also cap the dialup at 28.8

I do not know if AT&T is waiting for a grant or what but something needs to be done to force the phone cos to provide DSL to all the customers lines that can support it. For lines that can not support DSL we need a min set speed for dialup that they must provide.
