Just a little bit of DSL

Covad just started hawking a 6 megabits/768 kbps TeleSoho service for about $108 a month… but don’t worry, you could soon get a better deal from Earthlink which will soon be pushing a 8 megabits per second connection with lots of voice for about $70 a minute month. That will help DSL retain its leadership…. which is good news for Ikanos, which just went public. The VDSL chip maker sold 6.4 million shares at $12 a share, for a total of $69 million. The stock closed at $1 a share. By the way this is one of those rare broadband public offerings!
