$50 a month for 1Mbps: How AT&T and Verizon rip off DSL customers

The NDIA calls the practice of charging identical prices for wildly different speeds “tier flattening.” It affects both urban and rural customers who live in areas where AT&T and Verizon haven’t upgraded networks because they face no competition, because the upgrades wouldn’t result in higher profits, or both. These customers end up using “the oldest, slowest legacy infrastructure,” while paying much higher per-megabit prices than other Internet users. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica https://ift.tt/2OHuyoW
