I recently upgraded my DSL line when I called AT&T to remove CallNotes (so annoying).  The sales rep asked my if I wanted to review the rest of my account and see what is now available.  As this usually means you can save money, I agreed.  When we got to the DSL portion, the Pro line I was paying for was $39.99/mn at 3 mb/s which doesn't seem that bad.  She asked my if I wanted to upgrade to the Elite DSL Line Plan and I started drooling.  I asked, "What is an Elite Plan?".  She said, "It is our 6 mb/s DSL plan and it just was added to your area."  OMG, 6 mb/s DSL, that would be amazing, but it has to be $59.99 and that would be very TMMO me to do.  So I continued somberly with, "What is the price?"  To my surprise she replied, "$29.99/mn for 12 months".  So as you can imagine, a ten dollar discount for a year and twice the speed, sign me up.  So here are the results of my line test using SpeedTest.net (amazing testing interface).

I'm going to be paying about $60/mo for a connection on par or lesser than your old one when I move to my new place. :.-(
