Verizon To Offer ‘Naked’ DSL Service

According to CNET, the company confirmed on Wednesday that it plans to offer what’s been called “naked” digital subscriber line (DSL) service to customers within its local phone region by the end of 2004. Qwest Communications in February announced plans to offer a similar service to its customers.

Until recently telephone companies have only offered DSL to landline subscribers. But with more consumers using only wireless phones and with consumer groups puting pressure on them, the Baby Bells seem to be having a change of heart.
