Hello, I have a Fiber Connection in my home and a phone line. A little bit ago, I had a service where I shared my Fiber Connection through Dial-Up for $2/Month. 

Dial-Up became too slow and I want to figure out how to share my connection through a DSL line (I have a PBX to test it, if required.)

I'm not sure I understand your question? In what regard are you trying to share your Fiber? Are you trying to have individuals establish PPPoE connections to you? To have access to your internal network and resources?

I'm trying to share my internet connection VIA DSL (at about 1-5mbps) so I can offer a cheap DSL service.

So are you providing your customers with the DSL Modems necessary to connect to your infrastructure? Also, have you put the infrastructure in place to connect an IXP & CDN network?

I would be providing the customers with DSL modems, but would I have to set up an IXP & CDN connection? I'm just reselling my ISPs 100MBPS speed as 1-5MBPS DSL. And since I'm noob, I don't even know how to setup IXP & CDN anyway.

 

Pls help

So let me make sure I understand. Is this a residential connection that you wish to share in the surrounding area of your neighborhood?

So you wish to become your own Mini ISP. How many customers are you trying to support?

The question needs to be asked, and answered:  Does what's being proposed, even if it were possible, violate the terms of service under the OP's contract with his or her ISP?

 

I know of many people sharing a connection via WiFi and creating subnets in their modem-routers, which is well nigh impossible to stop.  But what's being proposed here goes well beyond that and involves infrastructure that I can't imagine any random individual has as far as transmission lines.

Oh, it's very possible! But I will take the hit for encouraging such a venture by asking those questions. My apologies I have been on shift all night and I'm not thinking clearly. Please forgive my bad judgment.

I'm trying to support just 3-5 customers in my neighborhood, and It does allow that.

I don't think that your judgement was bad...you asked questions which I felt were designed to elicit more info about just what the OP had/has in mind.

 

For the record...from what I see, the TOS from the carrier/ISP...is the determining factor for what can be done, what cannot be done, projected consequences, and so on.  If your provider gives the OK for such...then it seems logical that they will also provide some advice/suggestions on how-to, pitfalls, etc.

I would point out that you can't do DSL. You can't use the telephone company's phone lines. You would have to string your own from each house to yours to create your own DSL network. BTW you can't use their poles either.

Another option is doing wifi for the neighborhood but just the up front cost of equipment and getting the expertize to set this up properly is prohibitive
