......... is going to charge a set monthly fee for unlimited usage. I have kept the service on my W95 for backup. ad was being charged $9.9s for a short usage time, down from the &21.95 I had been paying since joining in '97.
Now they are moving everybody to the new service. But the CD they sent will not run on my old computer ("missing kernel") and, as kernel problems were common when I used it, it just isn''t worth it to trouble-shoot. The same, of course, prevents me from downloading it from their site.
Perhaps the ial-up community has dwindled too much to keep it going for an extended time. But I always liked the AT&T site, though I probably haven;t used it more than a total of 2 hours since being on cable for so long. It was handy when I moved, and it would take a while for the cable to be run.
They did win in their bid to use the existing cable lines here, but I have not seen or heard more about that.
I don't know how much the alternative phone services have hurt their phone business, but I suspect it is nothing to sneeze at.
"AT&T Inc. said Friday it will take a $1 billion noncash charge to account for changes brought about by the national health care bill signed into law this week."
Can't help but notice a pattern
