"Piss on AT&T" -- A Post in Two Acts

Act 1: Cory Doctorow of Boing-Boing says, "Piss on AT&T":
AT&T DSL should be avoided like the plague. These are the scumbags who illegally wiretapped the entire Internet for the NSA, who broke net-neutrality to find "copyright infringements", and who inspired NBC to call for a law requiring all ISPs to do the same (imagine -- a law forbidding network neutrality!).

Seriously: the only day I wouldn't piss on AT&T is if they were on fire.
Act 2: Cory Doctorow of Boing-Boing says how to "Piss on AT&T":
When AT&T bought out BellSouth, it had to promise the FCC that it would provide a basic, $10/month DSL service. However, AT&T has done everything it can to suppress information about the service.

The Consumerist has found the plan.
The plan provides download speeds of up to 768 kilobits per second and upload speeds of up to 128 kbps, matching AT&T's basic plan.

To take advantage of the plan, you'll need to sign a 1 year contract and you need to be a new customer to AT&T broadband. This plan sounds like a good opportunity for anyone you know who still has dial-up, or for people who don't need cable internet and want something slower and cheaper. And with this plan, the modem is free.
