I have a similar situation here... I am in town 'X', and the closest
switch is in town 'Y', even town 'Z' has a closer switch than my own
town.  However, as per everything with the phone company... the wires
run to the CO in my town (or I understand that is the case... this
isn't really always the case).

So, I'm way way way too far out from the "local" CO to get DSL w/o
repeaters or off some other MUX type deal on a pole.
