I haven't subscribed SBC DSL before. I am interested in the Express package that charges 14.95 per month, but it excludes tax and FUSF fee. I want to ask usually how much it will charge for each month in my case?
Please advise. Thanks!![TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I don't think they themselves know exactly how much it will cost from one month to the next. When I used to allow SBC here in my home two or three years ago, for local phone service _and_ DSL, the total bill each month was never less than one hundred dollars per month, and I was allegedly eligible for discounts given to senior citizens and disabled people under their 'lifeline' program. Even though SBC was instructed by the Kansas commmissioners to apply those rates to me, SBC retaliated with a phone bill which was _26 pages_ long full of all sorts of 'partial month credits' and 'rerates' for things, and the end result was the bill was eighteen dollars more than the month before! They lie about their prices and plans. For example, they told me _three years ago_ that I could have that $14.95 per month rate on DSL 'as long as you have Cingular cell phone service as well ...' I've had Cingular for a long time, but then SBC decided I as not eligible. They were also charging me for 'anonymous call blocking' but then not blocking anonymous calls, and their chairman's office claimed that if a caller passed a string of 'zeros' or 'ones' as their caller ID, that was sufficient and did not qualify for blocking purposes. I'd be very cautious about accepting their word on any of their plans; they find so many ways to make promises and then not keep them. You'd be better off going with a more reputable company, or perhaps cable internet. PAT]
