BellSouth Cuts DSL Pricing


BellSouth Corp. has once again taken an eraser to its digital-subscriber-line pricing list, announcing that it will cut the cost of its “FastAccess DSL Xtreme” service by $5 per month.

FastAccess DSL Xtreme -- which offers connection speeds as high as 3 megabits per second downstream and 384 kilobits per second upstream -- will now be offered for $37.95 monthly.

To sweeten the pot for new DSL customers, BellSouth will also offer a $50 Visa gift card to those signing up for “FastAccess DSL Ultra,” FastAccess DSL Xtreme and “FastAccess DSL Xtreme 6.”

"BellSouth is committed to the needs of every customer," vice president of consumer products Kim Whitehead said in a prepared statement. “And now, customers who need more speed can sign up for FastAccess DSL Xtreme for one of the most competitive prices in our market for similar products."
