" I suppose there are places in the US where you can't get any land-line-based

" DSL is getting wide-spread, even in the semi-boonies.

i think it can be fairly said that isdn evolved into dsl on more than
one technical level.  residential isdn was never popular here but
t1-speed isdn-pri for pbxes is, first sdsl, then differently-coded
hdsl, and now shdsl, 5.7Mbps on each of 1 to 4 pairs, and it can carry
atm cells or ethernet packets [frame relay?] as well as isdn xB+D.
btw right from the start, if you ordered a t1 you were likely to get a
sdsl with converters, cheaper for the telco.

and then consumer-targeted adsl/adsl2/adsl2+/vdsl/vdsl2 etc, some of
which can also bond multiple pairs.
