LAN to LAN using DSL modems and ADSL line possible?

Last Modified: 2013-12-29
I am in the UK.
We have two schools with small LAN's. I need to connect tha lans.
I have looked at eps8/9 (copper pair) circuits but they remain foolishly expensive and do not give a very good speed at all. BT (our telco) only guarnatee a few K. Apparently EPS circuits were only really meant for voice traffic.

I am now looking at:
Installing ADSL lines each site.
Installing DSL modems at each site
Configuring the DSL modems to 'dial on demand' the the other site.
Distance between sites is less than 2 miles. Exhange is in the middle.

So my question is; is this possible?
Will the "a"dsl line handle dsl traffic. (I need about 2mb minimum bandwidth.)
Will the exhange need special setup?

Thanks in advance for any help / advice.


ps I have read article Q_10416677.
