Re: No competition
"whatever name ATT DSL goes by."
That would be U-verse, as in
"hey, Mario, let's sign-up for the new AT&T DSL, Cable-TV, telephone, cellphone all-in-one offering."
"O-ah-kay-uh, u verse"
I just switched to it 3 months ago after they called and said they were about to discontinue the old DSL service I'd had from BellSouth days (~2005). The service itself is decent, but their billing system is the pits. The bills all say AT&T at the top, just like for the old DSL, but apparently there is NO way to get a banking payment mistakenly sent to the old account credited to the new account. Might as well have been telling them I'd accidentally sent the payment to Georgia Power for all the good it did.
