I also have ATT DSL and the bill remain the same after dry loop ($32.95)
You should call and ask. I see some ATT's ad. that basically has Direct DSL for the same price as DSL combines with other services.
We have it, but we don't use it. It IS, insanely, cheaper to buy the two services bundled than internet service alone, so for $9.something for cable we don't use, our internet service is discounted more than the $9.something. We'll eventually install switch boxes so that we can see the Boston channels our DirecTV won't let us see (in favor of the Springfield MA/Hartford CT stations it deems more local). But so far we haven't bothered and it's been..mmmm....4 years or so?
Only in America....
What is your dsl speed, Wayne? If it 6.0Mb downstream, the pride is correct.WayneDsr wrote:I have DSL Elite for $35 a month and AT&T told me if I dry looped it would go up to $45 a month. Interesting..
It seems that I'm the odd one out here. I have DSL Ultra at $32.95 when I signed up. Now after dry loop, my bill is still at $32.95frizzo wrote:Thats what they told me. The dry-loop add's $10 to what ever DSL plan one has. Regardless, they way i look at it, i'm still ahead with ooma, well i will be in a few mounths lol
However, there is an interesting twist to my story. When I called and requested my dsl to be dry loop, the CS was real nice, and she send me to a technician to complete the order. The tech. CS too was very nice, and she (yes another she) ask me if I order 2 att cordless phones. I just said I did not, and did not pay any attention to it. Then a week later, the 2 att cordless phones arrived, and I just promptly call ATT to return them. ATT even sends me a shipping label free of charge. I guess that the first CS that I called had done me a great service (she order them on my behave without my knowledge) which gave me a little inconvenient but save me $120/yr according to some of your experiences.
Direct Elite 6.0 $45
Direct Pro 3.0 $40
Direct Express 1.5 $35
Direct Basic 768kb $20
according to this link, a dry loop dsl only a few buck more, not $10. I suggest that you guys call and complain.
On a side note, Comcast internet only is more expensive than a bundle services. I did try them, but they only interest in getting my $$$$ without willing to pay for the replacement of the outside wire. I ended up cancel after 1 week.
I learn that in dealing with CS, polite and courtesy go both way.
