AT&T raises DSL prices for some customers

AT&T is increasing the price of some of its DSL service plans by $5 per month as it looks for ways to boost broadband revenue as overall growth of broadband adoption slows down. The price hike doesn't affect the telco's U-Verse customers or those who subscribe to most of the company's premiere service plans. It also won't be applied to the former BellSouth region, or to areas that qualify for $10 DSL, as stipulated in the regulatory conditions for the AT&T/BellSouth acquisition. AT&T and other telcos may do what they can to prolong the revenue-bearing life of DSL, while keeping their strategic mind set on the long-term evolution of their fiber-fueled networks.
