Generally speaking these services are available anywhere AT&T has wires:


due to these being the old tariffed services. If you call about ISDN, they
will likely say, huh what is that? The easiest way to get T1 in service is
to use a reseller. They will be deal with the ILEC for you. The cost will
also be lower. This is what I did when I needed a T1 to the house out here
in the country. I am 34,000 wire feet from the central office. My options
were those above. I cycled through each one as I needed more and more speed.

Looks like no dice on uverse, says its not available. i thought uverse was
fios though atleast that was my understanding. now im even more confused,
how can att/bellsouth be the ILEC and have zero internet options at all but
be offering pots? Only logical thing I can think of is distance from the CO
making dsl a no-go but i cant get an actual qual to atleast confirm that :(
