There are a lot of options depending on your existing equipment, how much you want to spend, etc. In all instances, you can find equipment that will act as a gateway allowing you to migrate in phases rather than all at once. A portion of your decision will be based on what carrier services you wish to provide as well as other complementary services that may be available from other carriers in your area. For instance, if another carrier in your area is offering video over DSL, you may want to offer a different service due to competition and the size of your potential customer base. Bearing in mind that many of your customers may not wish to replace equipment due to the cost for reconfiguration, etc., some parallel offerings will probably be necessary.
