One other point on RT's. You don't necessarily have to be a great distance
from the CO to be on one, although that is usually the case. When they run
out of copper lines to a particuliar area they usually run fiber and
install an RT rather than run a 500 or thousand pair copper bundle from
the CO.

The "RT" is quite common in Apartment buildings and the like.
Bell runs a T1 line to the location and splits that out into individual circuits.

Which is why DSL was not available until recently for them (or Doug). It requires that they replace the RT equipment with equipment which effectively places the DSLAMs in the RT.
