Or maybe DSL is doing just fine, thanks?

Mixed reports. DSL is down, no, wait, it's doing great.

Slice the numbers how you like, folks. TheStreet.com says DSL gains are slowing. The IHT today says DSL subscriptions are speeding up compared to cable. Maybe this is one of those expectations things. After a long time lagging miserably, DSL started booming, and now is falling back slightly to where it should have been all along, if the big phone companies hadn't been slow off the mark.

But stay tuned for when all the quarterly numbers come in. And keep your eyes on advanced projects, like Comcast's 6mbps and Verizon's Fios fiber optics. I want 30mbps down, and that's just for starters.
