Okay, now lets talk about a wide-scale xDSL implementation using a 
reasonably well known POP architecture like UUNet's. 

If xDSL can only run about 18kft end-to-end, to service a wide metro area 
like Washington, D.C. one would either have to have a POP within every 6 
mile radius (fed by conventional circuits) or backhaul the data (by 
conventional circuit) to their POP.

Is this correct, if not, what am I missing?
