  I think there may be a bit of confusion over "analog". In many cases,
  for the reasons mentioned above, digital signals are modulated to make
  them analog. If a user sends analog information over this type of digital
  carrier, you get analog --> digital ---> encoded analog. Higher speed
  links for ADSL, for example, do use complex analog encoding techniques
  to carry digital information. Clearly ISDN U-loops are not running near
  theoretical limits as can ADSL.  Dory
