Connection speeds may be higher under optimal conditions.

2Connection speed is between the Network Interface Device located at the end user's premises and the DSL-equipped central serving office or the DSL gateway. Actual data transfer or throughput may be lower than sync-rate due to Internet congestion, server or router speeds, protocol overheads, and other factors that cannot be controlled by AT&T-ASI.

This suite of speed profiles is structured to provide benefits to you and your end users:

  • Easier Upgrade Options for End Users - These speed profiles reduce the "leap" needed for an end user to upgrade to higher speeds. This closes the pricing gap between DSL Transport speed levels. Higher speed options would be available to ISPs for an incremental monthly fee. Contact your Sales Representative for more detailed information on availability and pricing.

  • Positions for Future Broadband Applications - By segmenting the product portfolio, we are creating categories of DSL which we expect to approximately correspond to new broadband applications in the marketplace, some of which may not even be known today. This segmentation allows more targeted sales and marketing based on specific needs identified by your end users. In addition, we expect that pressure will mount in the consumer and business markets to upgrade beyond the 384 Kbps downstream DSL speeds that are most common today. As broadband access becomes more mainstream, the marketplace will build the applications that will eventually fill up that pipe.

  • Increased Revenue Opportunities - You control your own retail pricing structure based on your business needs, but by stimulating your customer base to upgrade to higher speeds, you may have the opportunity for improving your bottom line profits.

  • Increase Your Customer Base - New Primary DSL products reach more customers thereby extending the reach of DSL.

Customer Self-Install (CSI)
In addition to DSL Transport, AT&T-ASI provides DSL modem packages and installation as additional options for ISPs across the 13-state territory. By purchasing CSI for your customers, they can avoid scheduling installation appointments. The CSI modem package, including user-friendly instructions, will be mailed directly to your customer. The ISP registration software, if necessary, will remain the responsibility of the ISP.
