This blurb was in the Milwaukee journal newspaper:
Q:I know currently DSL is limited to approximately 2.2 miles from a central office. Do you
have any specifics about when that will expand? - Bob Sarver of Kimberly
A: Under an initiative called Project Pronto, Ameritech is upgrading its central switching centers and
creating "neighborhood gateways," which will move DSL equipment closer to more neighborhoods and
increase the speeds available to users while increasing the range.
Some of these gateways are already in place but have not been activated for DSL service yet. They're
currently providing regular phone service but should begin boosting the range of DSL within the next
couple of months.
If all goes according to plan, by the end of 2002 about 80% of Ameritech and other units of SBC
Communications Inc. will have access to DSL service.
Do you know what product Ameritech and SBC is using for projec5t pronto (got to like the name)? What does this mean for PLNS
