If you have DSL in a Verizon area, you have DSL with Verizon. Period.
The landlines are owned by the local telco monopoly, and all DSL signal goes through t that company.
You buy the VZ DSL from DSLExtreme, a reseller of the telco's DSL.
said by zoom314 I have DSL in a Verizon area, just not with Verizon anymore, over a year back I went to DSL Extreme instead, I get what I want for $32.83 a month, which is 3M/768K and it's on 24/7. Cable here is TWC and it's more expensive for the same speeds and I'm not interested in moving to TWC.
