Verizon, AT&T Offer New DSL Promotions
To counter last quarter's dismal showing...
Last quarter, both AT&T and Verizon reported the lowest DSL subscriber gains ever. To try and improve their fortunes, AT&T is running a promotion that locks your current DSL prices down for two years
with no price hikes. Verizon, meanwhile, is offering free DSL broadband service for six months if users sign up for their voice/broadband bundle. As the Wall Street Journal
notes, these deals could start getting more impressive if these new offers don't do enough to keep customers away from cable operators. The Journal seems eager to call this a "price war," but that's probably a little too generous.
