Verizon puts it back on: no naked DSL for you!

Verizon logo

Yeah so, that news about Verizon offering "naked DSL" service? Turns out they're not really taking it all off, after all. They're barely even removing their winter fleece on this one, actually. It's not that you can drop landline service with Verizon and keep your DSL — oh, no — it's way too cold in the Northeast to get quite that naked. What you can actually only do is port your phone number to a different provider. Huh? Yeah, you heard it right: you can't actually ditch your phone service, still. Which leaves us scratching our heads as to which bit was actually newsworthy from that Verizon announcement. Some Tipper Gore-inspired standards body somewhere must have decided we've got to keep that DSL G-rated, yo.
