Short Take: ISPs deploying DSL quickly, study says

More than 30 percent of Internet service providers (ISPs) offer digital subscriber lines (DSL), deploying the high-speed Net access service faster than expected, according to a new study by Cahners In-Stat Group. The nearly 4,900 ISPs in the United States will have installed 1.35 million DSL lines by the end of the year, the study said. Cahners analysts likened the push for DSL as a "stampede," as ISPs race to compete with cable companies to be first in offering broadband services.
