Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs: 300 Mbs/sec over copper

Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs achieves industry first: 300 Megabits per second over just two traditional DSL lines

The initial thought is one of great, maybe my crap Internet connection can be dramatically improved, but this sounds like it will just give providers another excuse to delay installing fibre optics. There may be problems ahead though because DSL services use HF radio spectrum to send data over telephone lines and the worry from the ham community is of increased interference.
