You don't get fiber directly to your house, the expense of doing that kind of build out is just too high. So, they lay fiber to the local DSLAM, and then use vdsl to bridge the 'last mile' from the DSLAM to your house.

Me. I've just had vsdl service installed, which utilizes QWest's FTTN(Fiber To The Node) service. The DSLAM is about 2 blocks away from my house. I'm getting 20mbit down/5 mbit up. It's awesome. I see it as the future of DSL, simply bridging the last mile problem from fiber nodes.
