Apparently, this has been in the news for a couple of days, but only just
hit my hometown paper....
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 Michigan, who have never had
AT&T or BellSouth broadband.
Basically, it's only available to *OUR* customers that switch!
What the heck is the FCC thinking?
Did AT&T basically say, "Please don't throw me into that briar patch."
I cannot even lease dialup lines from AT&T/BS at that rate. It will put
all competitors out of business.
Anybody considering a lawsuit to stop this happening?
