$20 AT&T "Naked DSL" Arrives
A year after agreeing to offer a no-strings DSL deal as a part of its acquisition of BellSouth, AT&T has started selling high-speed Internet service without requiring consumers to buy regular telephone service.
The San Antonio-based company added the DSL Lite option to its Web site Dec. 20. The new offering, priced at $19.95 monthly, allows consumers to connect to the Internet without having to also pay for a landline, as had been required.
Talk about sneaking it into action, however. It's not easy to find either; you'd be better off calling about it if you want it. Additionally, despite the AJC story, we could not find it without a one-year contract.
