Verizon Gets Naked!
Will offer 'naked DSL' in Northeast

Responding to our Broadband Industry Gripe #2
(we wish), Verizon today announced they are now offering "naked DSL"
service (DSL without mandatory local service) to existing customers in the Northeast. CBS/Marketwatch
indicates Northeast customers (ex-NYNEX and Bell Atlantic) can cut or switch their local service with no penalty, starting today.
The company insists the move will be national in time, but gave no timeline for when true naked DSL would be available elsewhere. Verizon had promised this in May of last year
, but then seemingly backtracked.
