Exactly...same with SBC here. <br><br>To get DSL for $30 a month, even $25 as an intro, you have to have one of their expensive telephone line bundles. Plus you have to sign a one-year contract. <br><br>I get cable broadband for $41.95 a month, no cable TV requirement and no contract. Plus 5,000k download speeds through Earthlink. <br><br>Something most people don't know. The cable companies are required by law to allow other ISPs access to their cable lines. They never publicize it, but most cable ISPs offer alternate ISPs for less (and without the requirement to have cable TV to get the lower price, a la Comcast or Roadrunner.)<br><br>
