SBC Moves (slightly) closer to reality

Customer choice, in small steps, gets a win with SBC's announcement that they will begin selling VOIP services to DSL only clients in 2005. Up to this point, many telco's have required a conventional POTS (Plain Old Telephone System or land line for local calls) be part of a dsl agreement. Some consumers get around this by paying more for DSL only service (like me; in this case, I can upload files at the same speed I download them) and using a VOIP provider such as vonage or packet8.net (which I use and has provided generally good service).
