We present a novel iterative (turbo) receiver with tunable complexity for reliable detection of (uncoded) payload data transmitted over long intersymbol interference (ISI) channels affected by crosstalk, as those typically encountered in emerging HDSL2 services standardized by ANSI T1.418 recommendation. The proposed receiver combines in an original way "minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimation principle," "turbo-processing principle" and "crosstalk-prediction principle" for achieving both suboptimal maximum a posteriori probability channel equalization and reliable soft-mitigation of ISI tail plus crosstalk. More in detail, according to the turbo-processing principle, at each iteration suitable extrinsic information is extracted from the equalizing and interference-canceling modules and used as "a priori information" for the next iteration. Several simulation results on typical HDSL-like test-loops confirm the superiority of the proposed turbo-detector (TD) over current solutions based on conventional MMSE decision-feedback equalizers and precoders (such as the Tomlinson-Harashima precoder). The numerical tests also point out that performance of the presented TD on typical high bit-rate digital subscriber lines (HDSL) is not limited by error-floor phenomena, even at error-probabilities below 10-7
