Verizon Offering 'Naked' DSL in Northeast

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Verizon Communications said Monday that some
customers who already subscribe to its phone and high-speed Internet
service can drop their local calling plans but still keep their
speedy Web connection.

The ability to subscribe solely to Verizon's DSL, or high-speed
Internet service, could be attractive to young customers who rely
primarily on their wireless plan for phone calls. It could also appeal
to customers who want to try out new Internet-calling technology.

Initially, the availability of "naked DSL" will be limited to
customers in the New York company's old Northeastern territory once
served by Nynex or Bell Atlantic, the predecessor companies of
Verizon. And only customers who already receive phone and high-speed
Internet access from Verizon would be eligible.
