DSL will have to be discontinued some day.. There will be a day where coverage has to be implemented without seeking for interest first. Because that's the problem of why so many want,but cannot get it's that damned sign up to show interest thing. Our area has hundreds of people signed up for openserve 2 years ago, but still no fibre or even a glimpse of it. Everytime a new fibre provider arises they give coverage to the same select few areas as all the other providers. What do you get if you live in JHB? a million providers... What do you get if you live on the 2-4mbps max last mile ADSL areas? not even 1 fibre provider. Seriously, if a provider starts out and solely giving fibre to last mile'ers stuck on their DSL splinternet they would make more damn money than all those idiots who only give coverage in the hot spots.
