Get AT&T DSL Month-to-Month

In a move towards empowering consumer choice, AT&T DSL customers no longer have to be locked into 12 month contracts. AT&T now offers DSL on a month-to-month basis.

Customers currently under 12-month contract can switch to monthly without penalty, Ars Technica reports.

The new monthly price plans are as follows:

• Basic (768 Kbps downstream; 384 Kbps upstream) – $14.99 a month.
• Express (1.5 Mbps downstream; 384 Kbps upstream) – $19.99 a month.
• Pro (3.0 Mbps downstream; 512 Kbps upstream) – $24.99 a month.
• Elite 6.0 Mbps downstream; 768 Kbps upstream) – $34.99 a month.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours. If it doesn’t, it never was.

    Wow. I had no idea any broadband service required a contract.

    That makes Time Warner look like a dream.

    Looks like that elite package is the same as what i’ve already got on roadrunner, but 10 bucks cheaper. hmm, do they still require a landline?

    Most of the DSL & satellite packages I’ve seen are year contracts, and most of the cable (data & tv) are month to month. I wonder if AT&T offers it in my area, I think I’m stuck w/ Verizon in Somerville, MA…

    Yes, they still require a landline.

    And remember in regards to bandwidth, unlike cable it’s not shared, but it is limited by distance from the CO.

    I am an existing AT&T high-speed customer. I called to get the lower rate and the CSR very nicely gave it to me without trying to upsell or anything. What a pleasant surprise!

  6. i’m a fan of sbc/at&t’s dsl. i signed up for a year and had no problems. i was worried about the ‘full price’ kicking in at the end of the year (which i couldn’t afford), but they had no problems with renewing the contract and extending the cheaper price. it’s likely that they do this all the time, but i wasn’t expecting it and it was a nice surprise.

    when i moved out of the area, the rep fed me some line about ‘pulling strings’ to waive the early termination fee (which their own terms said i wasn’t on the hook for), but aside from that they were good to me the whole time.

    …..I wonder if they price like Bellsouth does. I’ve got 1.5 Mbps Fastaccess DSL Ultra service, and they advertise that it costs $32.95. Of course, when you actually pay the bill, it shows up as $46.89. They magically jump the price up to $42.95 on the bill, then add GOVERNMENT MANDATED taxes to that. So that cheap looking DSL results in a phone bill of about $95 bucks a month. Before you make any long-distance calls.

    lpranal: They do, in fact, require a landline. Which for us means that switching from cable/Vonage is not such a good deal after all.
