It might not be worth getting one's knickers in a knot about port  
availability. These things are VERY fluid, and the reason that no-one  
(this includes all ISPs that I've dealt with) knows which customers  
are likely to either sign up or pull out.

A few months ago, I was quoted a connection would be possible since  
'more than 190' ports were available (in the Canberra City exchange)  
and yet a week later, it was zero. Two weeks on - I got a line in.

As for tying DSLAM availability to buying/selling shares - that's  
quite a long bow to draw, and a rather reckless investment strategy.
