well.. first, you have to find out if service is even offered in your area
then call your local provider and see what their rates are, and see about getting them to hook you up

go to www.dslreports.com and see what services are offered (if any) at your address.

A key tool to try is the distance to CO finder in the FIND SERVICE section. If you live more than 18000 feet from your CO, you can forget about getting DSL. The closer you live to it, the better DSL service you can potentially get.
