This report explains how AT&T sets a much lower standard than Verizon Wireless for the speed of the devices and service it labels as 4G. The vast majority of what AT&T calls its 4G network is far slower than what Verizon Wireless call 4G, which is actually 4G LTE – a different technology that is four times faster or more. AT&T can do this because there are no regulations or governing standards.
Take a look at the report and get a better understanding of what 2G, 3G, 4G and 4G LTE means. A new report from Grudi Associates provides facts and explanations about 3G, 4G and 4G LTE wireless services that help customers choose the right carrier and service, while avoiding advertising hype.
Effective July 1, 2010, the price of AT&T FastAccess DSL Direct Lite (768 kbps) to
new customers is increasing from $19.95 to
$29.95 per month.
Existing FastAccess DSL Direct Lite customers will receive a bill notification in June 2010 informing them of a $5.00 per month price increase, from $19.95 to
$24.95 per month beginning July 1, 2010. If an existing customer has been enrolled in the plan for less than six months, this price increase will not take affect until they have six months of service.

AT&T is involved in a class action lawsuit regarding customers with DSL service who may not be consistently receiving speeds meeting their current service plan standards. A settlement has been reached and an Order preliminarily approving the settlement has been entered by the court. Most of AT&T’s customers are not impacted by the settlement.
