Indeed, I was responding to Ohta's comments regarding copper vs. fiber.  In this case, using DSL over the existing plant seems like a slam dunk unless very high speeds are needed or the plant is in very poor condition.  Modern VDSL/2 DSLAMs are relatively inexpensive and will push 100Mbps over surprising distances with essentially seamless fallback to ADSL2+ at ~24Mbps for long-reach situations.
