Fuck AT&T

As part of a concession made to the FCC in order to get its mitts on BellSouth, AT&T is required to offer basic DSL for $10 a month to its entire 22 state coverage area for a period of 2 years.

The plan provides download speeds of up to 768 kilobits per second and upload speeds of up to 128 kbps, matching AT&T's basic plan.

If you can't find the plan listed on the website, don't worry. AT&T wants it that way. They've hidden it, according to the AP.

A page describing DSL options doesn't mention it, but clicking a link for "Term contract plans" reveals it. It's also presented to customers who go into the application process.

The Consumerist took a quick look around and found it hidden, if you can believe that, on their website.

I can't believe I worked for those assholes. These are the scumbags who illegally wiretapped the entire Internet for the NSA, who broke net-neutrality to find "copyright infringements", and who inspired NBC to call for a law requiring all ISPs to do the same (imagine -- a law forbidding network neutrality!) And to think they're the network with exclusive rights to the iPhone, for two excruciating years! Honestly, and to paraphrase Cory Doctorow, the only time I wouldn't piss on fuckers like that is if they were on fire.
