My ATT DSL is only at 66kbps anyway.
Dial up is hardly the same thing as high speed internet.
Many people depend
on the speed of sharing large files in order to just conduct business and make a living, now. Going to dial up means they will have to find an alternative to their personal internet connection, which, if you live in a city with an exclusive contract, still means you'll be looking at using the business you are trying to avoid in the first place
"Voting with your wallet" doesn't work when there is no alternative. ISPs know this.EDIT:
Also where I live, for example, you have only two choices for Internet. PERIOD.
Comcast (Cable) or Verizon (Dial up, DSL), both
of which are six strikes participants.Edited by Cheezman - 3/22/13 at 7:00am
