I don't believe so.  At least SBC hasn't figured out how to do it as 
yet.  I live on the eastern side of Urbana, IL - quite a distance from 
the central office - and no luck on DSL availablility.

This is a bit frustrating as the University of Illinois, located here in 
Urbana, is a historical and current hotbed of IT research and design.  
Heck, the U of I was the birthplace of Mosaic, the basic DNA of all web 
browsers, and many of us here can't even get DSL!  Our only option for 
boadband is cable and wireless.
