You really meant 12Mb, which for $80 is RIDICULOUS......
Yeah I meant 12 Mb

I'm on VDSL2 and I'm getting 24/3 (pay for 25/3). This isn't even the max, it's just the highest package that my ISP offers. I'm sure I could get 30+ down and 5+ up if my ISP offered those speeds for sale.

DSL (at least VDSL) is not obsolete.

"In 2009, Stephenson's compensation as CEO of AT&T totaled $20,240,457, including a base salary of $1,450,000, a cash bonus of $5,850,000, options grants worth $75,834, stock grants worth $11,999,991, and other compensation totaling $864,632.[2]

In 2010, compensation totaled $20.2 million for 2010, a sum that was unchanged from the previous year which equated to a 6 percent increase over 2009. His cash incentive payment totaled $5.05 million, down 14 percent from the year before. Most of his 2010 compensation was in the form of options and performance-based stock awards valued at $13.2 million, up 10 percent from 2009"
Its not the FCC they're Paying off. if it werent for the big ISP whining/complaing/bribing the government against the regulations that the USA had in the 90's we wouldnt be in this position today. the ISP's bribed and sued the government until those got repealed. guess what, countries like japan and south korea took the good leaf out of the USA's book and used those same regulations, but didn't bend over backwards when their ISPs complained. now they have 70Mb/s tth @ $0.2/mbit while we are stuck with 5MB/s tth @ ~$3/mbit

I definitely agree about the big isps needing to die though, or at least restructure their finances so that $20M+ can go towards things far more useful than Mansions and private jets

Edit: the reason i say it isnt the FCC that they are paying off is because there is no need to without the Regulations in place. the FCC has no power to enforce anything if there is no Regulations............

Yeah Randall, DSL is so obsolete you are capping DSL subscriber connections on your network.

I literally cancelled my AT&T U-verse subscription the moment I heard they were capping my 24Mbps line at 250GB a month. Laughable.

Charter was cool throughout the whole process, even though it took awhile to reach them. Oddly enough, they don't seem to enforce the bandwidth cap on me which is good at least.
I've had nothing but horrible experiences with AT&T customer service as well. They tell you one thing and then something entirely different actually happens. I'll be switching soon even if I have to pay considerably more somewhere else, it just isn't worth the hours spent on the customer service line trying to straighten out AT&T's mistakes.

No, my DSL is 6mbps. It all depends on what area you live in.

DSL is old school. In Australia, the government is rolling out Fibre for 93% of the population and can reach up to theoretical speeds of 1gbps...the remaining (most likely far away country side people) will use more advanced wireless.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Broadband_Network

We have the government doing this in Australia because we don't have massive companies like USA does. I'd like to see some of the big technology companies in USA start building fibre also. Times are changing and the people deserve better!

I'd rather have Aussie Gov. The upgrading of Infrastructure in the states doesn't fit into the the Exec's personal bonus plans.

"DSL"

Yeah what kind of DSL does he mean

Cause i know for a fact VDSL2 can push over 200mbps so i would not say thats obsolete.

If he said "ADSL or SDSL" Yes for sure.
Full Steam Ahead!

I have never had DSL, only way i would use it was if i had no choice. No reason to use it now when cable/fibre is much better. And i really can't stand ATT so that is another reason not to have DSL here. There are a few places that have good DSL coverage where u can get 24mbps, but it is not offered here.

Also, why have DSL when i am having good results with my 20/2 Line. They are also getting 30/5 and 50/5 here as well.
