I was guessing your service based on the $22 amount. That is almost double from what it was when I had Sonic DSL (with metered AT&T phone service) before I upgraded to Fusion.
Either prices have gone up significantly or your county/city is adding major fees to the total cost of maintaining a phone line. It may still be worth checking your phone bill to see whether there are any "features" added by AT&T that you can drop.--
