Verizon's 'Naked' DSL
12 states bundle-free, more to follow
Verizon's decision to offer "naked" DSL, or DSL without a forced local phone service option (see report last week
) is apparently only currently being offered in 11 states. Verizon executives say the move is "about keeping that broadband relationship with the customer,"
and indicate they hope to make a broader naked DSL offering before long. According to the Morning Call
, those 12 states are New York, New Jersey, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Delaware, Maryland, Vermont and Rhode Island. Qwest already offers
an unbundled service, will SBC and BellSouth be far behind?
