Broadband Daily's quarterly report on BellSouth suggests that the telco is leading the pack in DSL penetration and availability.
Although residential subscribers declined in the second quarter, BellSouth's DSL business added subscribers at a torrid pace. The company is focusing on making DSL profitable.
BellSouth is moving on deploying DSL to 87 more offices in Mississippi. The company also said it is working on improving customer service.
Broadband Daily's quarterly report on SBC suggests that the company is moving in a strong strategic direction.
BellSouth, Qwest, SBC and Verizon added 500,000 DSL subscribers in the fourth quarter of last year. Total DSL growth for the fourth quarter was still slightly less than the number of subscribers added in the third quarter.
