I usually don't like 'get' domains, but Jim's idea sounds like a real winner, Gourd.
Getdsl.net visually has pull power, a call to action to the buyer, exactly at the right time, when someone is shopping to purchase dsl services. It doesn't hurt that it is also short, relevant, and a breeze to type, say, and remember.
Gourd... If you could build even a single long page of an A to Z listing of the top 50 or so DSL providers in America, even with links you don't get paid for, you could gradually develop traffic like a snowball and significantly increase getdsl.net's resale value over time.
Oh, and about it being a .net? .Net works fine in my mind for a dsl site. I type-in .net's all the time when I am looking for internet related services. .Net's are excellent for alot of tech companies. And NO I don't own alot of .net's!
Here are my $$$ valuations for getdsl.net
1. Reseller Afternic or ebay market - $100 if you are lucky.
2. Current Premium Enduser value - That would be an existing DSL company, ISP, or .net startup - up to $1,000 - if it matches a project they are working on.
3. Premium enduser value -1 year After developing DSL directory links page and building traffic with SE's - $2500
