Just don't forget to install a small DSL phone line low-pass filter 
(which comes with the DSL installation package) 
between your computer modem outlet

I now have Verizon FIOS fiber-optic service, which provides much faster
downloads of large files than DSL.  There was not much improvement
in perceived speed over DSL for routine browsing.  I still use Juno 5,
