We have ATT DSL because they bought out Bellsouth DSL, which was formerly all Ma Bell before the breakup now they were allowed to buy themselves back. ;D

ATT keeps telling/warning me about a new home page.
Can't wait till they tell me I have to change my e-mail address. :D

Our Service has been great. No problems.
Try to package your phone with unlimited long distance and your DSL.  It is way better'n dial up and worth it IMO.

FWIW

We have verizon here in SE Pa - suspect ATT might be around but have small market if so - and verizon's dsl is way faster than dial-up with no complaints.

A friend just got verizon's fios ( fiber ) - yeoow he's  way  way  faster than me. Course he's paying for it  . . .

I've had DSL service for 3 years - can't imagine life w/o it.  It's great!

   I just went from dial-up to DSL (Embarq). Wow, what a difference. Did you know there are videos on the internet! :o I thought they were still pictures that jumped every once in a while! ;D

   Makes a big difference in the internet experience and it's nice to have the phone line free too.

AT&T has a $10 per month "secret" DSL plan for folks in certain states due to a merger. You have to sign up for a year and be a first time customer, but the speed is pretty good.

The plan is "secret" because AT&T has made it difficult to find out information regarding this plan.

at&t has said that i cant have dsl at any price as they only make it avaliable to people that live in or near the cities. or something like that.  i have went with verisions air card. it is not cheap nor is it as fast as dsl. but it works anywhere you can get a verision cellphone signal. i like the idea of being able to use my laptop anywhere i go. a few places around here have wi fi it sure is fast compared to diaup.

Yup.. the problem is DSL only works if you are less than 4 or 5 km from the Access Module. Because the access modules are expensive they only install them in places where they will get 100 or so customers, basically meaning towns.

Technically they could get you DSL, by installing a node just down the road from you, but they wont because it wont service enough customers to pay for it.  :(

That leaves everyone out in the country with dial-up or some type of (usually expensive) wireless.

Ian is right about the access module, but it's worth giving them a call. I live in the country near a  town with a polulation of 5,000. There is a module close enough for us to get DSL.
