    AT&T has changed a little. $34.00 for 768 Kbps Basic. Used to be 19.99 or 25.00 Don't know if you still have to buy a modem or not.

    Cant get DSL here anymore the slowest thing here is 3 Mbps FTTN U-Verse I rember 768K it wasn't much good for video and loaded web pages kinda slow sometimes . 3mbps DSL was significantly better and the 18 mbps U-Verse I have now ain't bad.

    I started out with maybe 14.4 dial up Usenets and BBS way back before the web as we know it started up then went to 28.8K ,then 56K then 768K DSL and so on .....


    My next move might be ~ 40 mbps or more for 4K /4K WCG HDR Netflix and Amazon video and OTT iptv . I already have the Sony WCG 4K HDR TV for it in here & Amazon Prime & Netflix . Upscaled bt709 1080p > 2160p Sony style looks real good for now using OTA & even on the good Dish channels or Netflix /Amazon /Vudu until they get lots more 4K /4K HDR content .

    I belive you can still buy and or lease DSL modems at AT&T ...........but U-Verse modems are lease only now and other brands won't work on U-Verse whereas you can buy a better DSL modem /router than AT&T has at Best Buy etc.

    I had one of those aftermarket DSL modem/routers after my owned AT&T 2 wire DSL modem died shortly out of warranty after the original one was replaced in warranty once or twice before that .

    The aftermarket DSL modem & Wi FI was way better than the ATT 2 wire junk they had then .

    I sold the aftermarket DSL modem/router on E bay for not much less than I paid for it after switching to U-Verse.

    I made them put a Pace 3801HGV U-Verse modem in here that they use for U-Verse TV and triple play with a free truck roll ( after a recommendation from an ATT tech on DSLreports forum ) when the cheaper 2 Wire U -Verse Internet only junk they leased me failed a second time ! I use OTA & Dish for TV though & the lease amt. is the same on the 3801 .

    The Pace 3801 is pretty solid with strong Wi Fi also but it only does 802.11g 2.4 Ghz ISM band Wi Fi so the next speed bump will require a different U -Verse modem/ RGW or an external Wi Fi Router behind it even though 802.11 is theoretically 54 mbps you can only get maybe 25-27 mbps reliable throughput on 802.11g anyway .

    ATT = Comcast of the Sky now since they bought Direct TV ...........less competition and probably higher prices soon all brought to you by AT&T and the FCC !
