SHDSL has been around for many years in the European market. I would suggest you have your local service company in to discuss compatibility issues with your current equipment.

In addition to discussing your local equipment's compatibility, you should also discuss your office's actual needs and use for this circuit.
In terms of total bandwidth, the SHDSL circuit is superior to the PRI:

A PRI provides a total bandwidth of 1.544 Mbps.
A 4-wire SHDSL Circuit can provide anywhere from 384Kbps up to 4.6Mbps.

Depending on the entrace cable into your complex would depend on the reliablility.

If all you have is copper then they would be about as reliable at each other. As long as your loop length on the SHDSL is less than 16K ft. It seems to have issues past that point. Also if you are past that point then it would probably be better to use T1/PRI.

IMHO, for normal voice and data applications, I prefer the ISDN PRI. However, SHDSL is preferable if you'll be requiring advanced services such as VPN, Remote LAN Access, Web Hosting, etc. Your voice services would then be provided via Multi-Line Voice over DSL [VoDSL].

Thanks. That seems to be the overwhelming concensus ... that a t1/pri is preferable if one is willing to spend the $$$
