I just saw a pretty good deal on the Verizon DSL website. This only indirectly affects online marketers who work from their home or office. We are a captive audience, because you can’t remove the “online” from online marketing. The cost of unreliable internet service is way too high to justify using cheap DSL.
The are offering 768 Kbps high speed Verizon DSL for $14.99/mo with a two year contract. With this 2 year agreement and $14.99 price point, Verizon is guaranteeing this price for life as long as you stay an active Verizon DSL customer.
Sounds like a pretty good deal to me, and a good indicator that high speed internet prices will be falling in the future. Competition is great for the internet marketplace, and telcos are in a fierce battle with cable companies over the right to provide you entertainment services. Verizon FIOS is a faster internet service with up to 5 Mbps. I’ve been considering FIOS, and at $29.99 per month it seems like a pretty good deal, especially if it can replace my cable.

This is just a note that has nothing to do with Verizon DSL service. Since I pay Verizon almost $150/mo for my DSL and cellphone service this is a company I interact with regularly, and they interact with me regularly by debiting my bank account monthly. Luckily this coupon offers a discount on DSL internet services.
I can’t stand their company name and still think it is the most ridiculous company name aside from squidoo.com. Verizon has very reliable broadband services but the name sounds like some sort of Mormon version of Zion on the horizon. While i’m railing on verizon, im not a fan of their corporate color scheme, it reminds me of a fire department that tries to do tech. The Verizon.com website really doesn’t do much for me either, its plain like the 1950’s. Luckily their service rocks, otherwise this company would be in trouble.
Argh – i misspelled their name Verizion – damn this name is confusing.
