I think they do it in Germany because ISDN took off over there, but it's
more complex. In the UK, you have to have PSTN and I'm pretty sure it'll be
the same over here.
There was a story there a while ago about a guy in UK who had ISDN and
wanted to get ADSL from BT, they said he'd have to drop down to PSTN and
then they'd come and test the line and see if it was ADSLable. The real
sting was that if it wasn't, he'd have to reapply for ISDN and wait for them
to reconnect him as if he was just another Joe Soap looking for ISDN and it
could take weeks!
Now you know where Eircom get their inspiration from!
