As SnapVoIP reported, AT&T is hiding the advertisement of $10 DSL access it is supposed to provide due to a legal action. These explain how far a telephone company goes to protect it's pockets.
But this article is to tell you why net neutrality is important to all of us and how to go about making sure that the net stays neutral.

You can do what I did, you can use the tools provided by them!
