What type/speed interface are you looking at using to connect to the telco 
or whoever's DSL you're looking at reselling?  Back when I was involved in 
this, it was common to use ATM, either T1, NxT1, or T3, and we did this 
with 3640 or 7206VXR.  But this was back when DSL was generally 1.5Mx256k.
