At&t DSL Direct Offers

Now, At&t DSL internet service and its packages used to be At&t’s Internet-only offers for home internet customers called DSL Direct and the plans were:

They had fixed prices and speeds and were only discounted when there was any kind of promotional offer running from At&t, and that was for a fixed amount of time and a fixed amount of discount.

As you can see, these were the offers from At&t before the DSL Internet-only service from At&t was replaced with their fiber-based internet. All of the above internet plans came with access to At t Wi-Fi service as well.

You would also get McAfee Security Suite bundled free with Pro and Elite packages while with Express, you had to pay $5 extra per month to have this offer. Also, with these internet packages, you had to pay extra to get the internet modem and wireless gateway. 

With all the plans came, free internet storage, free web-based emails with up to 11 email accounts, and a dial-up account as well for when you are not at home and are only able to use a phone line. There were also offers and promotions and users would get monthly discounts or reward cards from At&t that would give high discounts on packages for a fixed amount of time. 

All of these DSL Internet services from At&t are now replaced with fiber-based internet services called At&t fiber where a fiber optic is used to transmit data at the speed of light and now the basic package has an internet speed of at least 100 Mbps.
