Brand X Internet has been agressive in fighting for consumer choice.
We took the FCC to the Supreme Court challenging regulations that allowed the
telephone companies to grab control of the Internet from the companies and
research organizations that originally built it.
The phone companies
won round one, but the battle isn't over. We believe "network neutrality"
can be achieved only through real competition. Single source internet
is a bad plan, no matter how you regulate it. Nobody has every voted
on these issue, but we believe when the voice of the American people is heard,
competition will be the rule.
Jim Pickrell, Brand X Internet.
No Telephone - No Problem!
You don't need a bundle or a telephone line to get DSL service with Brand X Internet. Standalone means your DSL rides on a dry pair, a telephone line without telephone service.
No Contract - No Problem!
Brand X generally sells DSL sevices in units of one month. We generally don't require term contracts.
Most telephone and cable companies try to lock you in wit two year contracts. They know you have better alternatives and they don't want you to switch.
No Bundle - No Problem!
Verizon won't sell you DSL unless you buy phone service, and if they can, they'll add video services to your bundle too. You can easily spend $180 a month or more!
ATT and the other companies all want to sell bundles, and they end up really padding up your bill.
We can install DSL and we won't try to sell you a bundle.
