SBC promos DSL at a low rate (or do they?)

SBC promos the SBC Yahoo! DSL offerings for those who order online and subscribe for a minimum of 12 months. 1.5 Mbps for 15 dollars, 3 Mbps for 25 dollars.

Sounds rather nice - or does it?
  • in Korea and Japan slightly more is paid for a 20-40 Mbps service
  • in France 8 Mbps costs 15 euros
  • other charges apply
  • at the end of the term then-current rates apply (better make a diary entry)

Still, the telcos keep pushing for lower rates, hurting both themselves and the cable companies, who may at some point need to follow suit.
