Verizon to Sell High-Speed Net Connections for $14.95 a Month - New York Times: "Verizon's $14.95 service, which uses digital subscriber line, or D.S.L., technology, requires that customers sign a one-year renewable contract. The new service allows users to download e-mail, pictures and other information at top speeds of 768 kilobits a second, or about 10 times the speed of a typical dial-up Internet connection. However, its speed is only about a fourth that of Verizon's other D.S.L. service, which costs $29.99.
Comcast and other cable companies typically charge $39.99 or more for high-speed lines."
