Speak to your phone company - they can tell you if your line is ok and if your exchange is adsl enabled.

Speak to your phone company - in England they can remotely test the line and send someone out to your house. Not sure how they do this in Colombia though. Only your phone company can tell you this.

I'd say that only your provider can check it.
