AT&T launches faster DSL speed

A-T-and-T is making a new bid to boost its broadband offerings as it competes with cable companies -- it's introducing a consumer D-S-L service with twice the speed of its fastest plan so far.

Starting today, the San Antonio-based telecom is selling faster Digital Subscriber Line service with download speeds of up to six megabits per second. The price for the first 12 months is 29 dollars and 99 cents per month.

Starting Monday, itll also be available for online ordering at a slightly lower price -- 27 dollars 99 cents per month for the first year.

After 12 months, the price rises to 39 dollars and 99 cents for both ordering options.

The service will be sold in A-T-and-T's 13-state service area -- but availability is dependent on the distance from the customer's home to A-T-and-T's network.

The new service is available at distances up to one-and-a-quarter miles from a central office -- that's about half the range of the one-and-a-half megabits-per-second service.
