NEW YORK (AP) -- SBC Communications is cutting the price for high-speed Internet access to $15 per month for new subscribers who sign up online.
It's another aggressive move by the San Antonio-based telephone company as it looks to add and retain customers in advance of its push into cable TV service later this year.
The promotional rate for SBC Yahoo DSL Express is priced well below what many dial-up Internet services as well as rival broadband providers charge.
Customers must sign a one-year contract to get the $15 rate.
After that first year, the price will revert to the regular fee, currently about $27.
The $15 dollar rate for DSL brings entry-level download speeds of between 384 kilobytes per second to 1.5 megabytes per second.
