ADSL is distance limited, I think to just over 2 miles from the switch and for security reasons (I asked) they won't tell you where the switch is located. I was lucky in Moscow, Idaho because the switch was in my neighborhood. I could not get ADSL when I moved here (GJ, CO) and checked into wireless. It was crazy expensive for much less bandwidth.
Maybe this will help. I've found this link to be useful everywhere I've moved:
Use find service then check the user ratings of the providers (written by the locals in your area). I pulled up ACI, Associated Communications Internet, Inc
in Washo Reno, NV. http://www.aci.net/
Looks like they are still building their wireless service but they offer ADSL through Nevada Bell covering reno, carson city, and sparks. You can use the Find CO utility http://www.dslreports.com/coinfo
to find coverage in your area either by zip code or zoomable map. Links to user reviews are there also with comments on service and reliability.
