Re: How Long Before AT&T Does The Same Thing? Then He should, If He/She can, move to DSL Extreme, they don't require voice service, unlike stodgy old and greedy(desperate maybe?) Verizon. I pay $32.83 a month on 3M/768K service for Dry Loop DSL.
I'm in San Diego, and when I got hit by AT&T's $10 overage fee last month I dumped them and was looking at DSL Extreme, but they told me where I live I had to get a landline from AT&T, for what I have to assume are technical reasons. The numbers didn't add up, so I switched to Time Warner Cable instead.
I use a prepaid line for my phone needs, and a landline is worth maybe $5/month to me. The minimum cost of a landline from AT&T was $25/month. The DSL line from AT&T was $20/month -- and that was after I had haggled them down from $30/month -- before the $10 overage fee. TWC charges $30/month with no cap, so I jumped.

No dry loop DSLx with AT&T, at least in California. You have to have AT&T voice to get DSLx here.
