AT&T quietly adds $10-a-month DSL
Offer semi-hidden on Web site, plan for term contracts

Associated Press

NEW YORK - Without any sort of fanfare, AT&T Inc. has started offering a broadband Internet service for $10 a month, cheaper than any advertised plan.

The DSL, or digital subscriber line, plan introduced Saturday is part of the concessions made by AT&T to the Federal Communications Commission to get its $86 billion acquisition of BellSouth Corp. approved last December.

The $10 offer is available to customers in the 22-state AT&T service region, which includes former BellSouth areas, who have never had AT&T or BellSouth broadband, spokesman Michael Coe confirmed Monday. Michigan is included. Local phone service and a one-year contract are required. The modem is free.

The plan was not mentioned in a Friday news release about AT&T's DSL plans, and is slightly hidden on the AT&T Web site. A page describing DSL options doesn't mention it, but clicking a link for "Term contract plans" reveals it. It's also presented to customers who go into the application process, Coe said.

The service provides download speeds of up to 768 kilobits per second and upload speeds of up to 128 kbps. The agreement with the FCC required the company to offer the plan for at least 2 1/2 years. Coe said he could not comment on future advertising plans for the offer.

I've been happy with Comcast internet. I get a $15 discount because it's an add-on to my cable tv. It's fast and is never down.

Ditched Comcast after the rates went skyhigh and the outages were far too frequent. Been with Wow for about 5 years now (?) and the service has been more reliable and less expensive.

If you live in the Lansing area, ACD has some decent rates and speed with their DSL (no phone service required).

I have had comcast for a few years now. The only time my service gets interrupted is when some dillhole takes out a pole with their car.
