Verizon refined their pricing for DSL services today by removing all contracts and simplifying their pricing tiers into two options: their low end tier (500 Kb/s to 1 Mb/s) for $19.99/month ($14.99/month when ordered online) and their other tiers (1.1-3 Mb/s, 3.1-7 Mb/s or 7.1-15 Mb/s) for $34.99/month (or $29.99 online).

Additionally Verizon is offering their naked DSL, or dry loop DSL as they like to call it (allows customer to buy DSL without requiring them to also buy a phone line), for $29.99/month ($24.99 when purchased online) for the low end tier and $44.99 ($39.99 online) for all other three.

The new pricing is effective immediately and customers who buy online also get a free wireless router.

Verizon moved to no contracts for FiOS services already and is now extending that offer to DSL subscribers. By only offering two pricing tiers, they greatly simplify their DSL product to end customers and to the CSRs who sell them.

The move also further defines low end DSL as the ‘broadband value play,’ as compared to more expensive and faster cable modem offers.

  1. One Verizon representative told my husband that they stopped offering "naked DSL" or "Dry Loop" over a year ago. The second told him they quit two months ago. As of November 16, people living in our area only have one choice for full service DSL…and we're being gouged by Verizon on the pricing. We originally had the Verizon bundle for phone/television/internet, which when we dropped our DirecTV had gone from the original $99-per month to $129-per month…that would have been okay if not for the $70-plus in taxes. We need an alternative out here in the country and we need it now.

  2. Verizon has assured me that the pricing and speeds of their DSL are not guaranteed. They have also told me that I pay 34.99 plus taxes for .5-1 Mbps. A speed test shows I receive only a .7. When I signed up for Verizon I was told that I would receive up to 3 Mbps. Everywhere I look shows that they are advertising up to 3 Mbps for much less than what I pay and I can't believe that they claim that none of their services or tiers are guaranteed…seems all they can guarantee is to bill me for services that they are unable to provide! We need an honest, reliable company for DSL; a company that isn't just out to take our money!!!!!!!! I see that they are gouging a whole lot of people!
