AT&T Offers $10 Broadband Internet
Suddenly, without any advertising campaign, AT&T has begun offering a $10-per-month broadband Internet service in 22 states, the AP reported Monday.
Why the low price, which is about half of what AT&T charges for its lowest advertised price? AP columnist Peter Svensson calls it a concession to the FCC, which last December approved the telecom giant’s purchase of BellSouth for $86 billion. The special price, however, is only offered to customers in those states who have never had AT&T or Bellsouth broadband service. It also requires purchase of AT&T’s phone service.
