Exactly. Or, in our case, we also have a regional DSL provider who is 
connected to our ISP's gateway router (and thus only one hop farther 
from our equipment than our T1-attached customers), and they are working 
on providing downstream QoS to their customers who use our service.

Once that is in place, customers who are willing to sacrifice a little 
reliability to save a lot of money will have that option. There are 
still some "oversubscription" points in the DSL network that the DSL 
provider cannot control, but by and large it will be an acceptable 
solution for a great deal of small customers.

Again, though, this traffic is not going over the "wild" Internet; yes, 
it is traversing a (single) public Internet router, but I have not a 
small whit of concern about that router's ability to feed traffic at 
full speed to each of these links.
