I have always been a great admirer of American Wiring. This is what the telephone hook-up looks like in the basement of our new home. I wonder if this was installed when the house was build in 1926. Can you imagine a DSL signal getting though that thing? Well, my posting this from the convenience of our still empty living room is proof that is does!
On a related note: I have been on the phone with Verizon quite a bit lately. And I found out that, while in their automated phone system, when you say "Person Please" you quite often get asked if you indeed want to speak to a person, and even more amazing: if you confirm you do get an actual person on the line! After being put on hold of course.
