They theoretically can travel on the same wire, but unlike ADSL/analog
which travel on different wavelengths, there are some overlap between
ADSL/ISDN so it is not usable currently.  It is theoretically possible
to use a different band for ADSL, but NTT is probably not going to do

It is indeed rumored that NTT might offer ADSL/ISDN or SDSL/ISDN with
ISDN encapsulated over DSL, so it is not as implausible as you think.

I was thinking of the high speed local data network when I wrote that. I
get the impression that both Flet's service share that same network, no?
