    $10 DSL

    When I read about $10 DSL from BellSouth(now AT&T), I contacted them and was told it was not being offered. I quoted the newspaper article quoting AT&T CEO about the $10 DSL being offered as a concession to acquiring BellSouth. I contacted someone at AT&T and was finally given the $10 per month rate. The newspaper article said the modem would be free as well but I was charged for the modem but finally got a $75 rebate. A squeaking wheel gets the grease and I did squeak until I got my grease!
    The rate has increased to $15 since. The $10 rate was supposed to last for 2 1/2 years or 30 months but today I got a notice that the rate is going to $19.95 per month as of 3-1-11. I have been satisfied with the service.
