AT&T raise Internet dial-up prices

AT&T is raising dial-up Internet access prices in some of its markets by about 60% over current rates. The move in part is a ripple effect of AT&T's acquisition of BellSouth, as many of the affected markets reportedly are former BellSouth markets where prices had been lower than AT&T's uniform rate and other competitors' rates. However, it also looks to be an attempt to coax more dial-up customers over to DSL as broadband access growth has been slowing of late. The shrinking dial-up Internet access market is now barely a sideline for the major telcos, and has been moving more toward specialist providers who, unlike the broadband giants, might give dial-up users the time of day.
