According to this article over at C|Net, it appears that DSL providers are not sitting idle on the news that the new DOCSIS 2.0 revision may speed Cable Modems up by 200%. Snip:

An emerging high-speed Internet standard in Europe holds potential for faster download speeds and broader availability for many U.S. businesses--if they're willing to wait a while.

Although DSL speeds vary widely, the new G.SHDSL could be two to three times faster than most versions of DSL targeted at business customers. The G.SHDSL standard also can deliver data farther than earlier DSL technologies, which are limited to a relatively short distance.
Good news for those that live 2 blocks too far to get DSL support for sure!
