It's not rocket science. You order POTS line from the LEC. Then you order
DSL from your favorite shared-line DSL provider on that POTS line. 

Trying to get non-lineshared-dsl might be a challenge. 

However, I recommend POTS + DSL, for additional OOB-ness, you can plug
your DSL modem into the OOB ethernet and your analog modem into OOB serial

fwiw, we are providing dsl to 111 8th MMR, the one running the free wifi
there :)
