Under the AT&T DSL TOS, once Uverse is offered in the same area as DSL, you are required to switch, if AT&T so requests.
However, the switch is not supposed to cost you any money. This customer should call and request a credit.
I had AT&T DSL for four year. I had the faster package they offer at 6MB down.
Moved from AT&T DSL to UVerse, have a faster speed for less money (although I now get tv and UVoice as part of the bundle).
I'd investigate if DSL Extreme was within range and see about getting service from them, if one doesn't want Uverse.
