You might be surprised on how critical DSL is part of their plan.
The #1 item at the top of their last Earnings report was...
"446,000 increase in DSL lines, to reach nearly 4 million in service, up 60 percent over past four quarters"
If they don't meet their projections they will get hammered by the market.
I'm not sure what their margin is on DSL, but since the line is free (ie you just ride over the phone line and they already make money off the phone line) I'm sure there making something every month and when you multiple that by 4Million...
anyway...back on subject
