Not all the telephone exchanges in the UK are ADSL enabled yet. And some
of them that aren't enabled are not particularly remote: they just
haven't been upgraded yet.
FWIW: my company has a few subsidiaries around the UK (and elsewhere).
We've one site in the wilds of Northern Ireland that can get broadband,
and another one not too far east of Exeter  that can't. It's far
enough outside Exeter that it's on a different exchange, which is due
to be upgraded in a couple of months.
I can't wait, personally: they're making do with ISDN. The people
actually working there are even more keen!
