AT&T dsl in California, huge increases here.
Mine: 1.5 -> 18 ($52)
Dad's: 3 -> 27 ($30)
They gave him some sort of old grouchy person discount that I can't wrangle out of customer service.
They probably put you into the Uverse category, where they essentially move the CO to your neighborhood (in those boxes) so your distance (which is what limits speed in DSL) is almost non-existent. I thought about doing Uverse, as I've seen those boxes up for at least a year in the neighborhood, however it's not available here for some reason.
