SBC being arm twisted into naked DSL

Houston Chronicle: For SBC, offering naked DSL goes against the grain of its triple play “bundling” strategy, which is to sell packages of voice, video and data services at discounted prices. But competitive pressures from Qwest, the first to announce naked DSL service, and Verizon, which announced recently it would eventually provide it, are forcing SBC to grudgingly test the waters. The company says not many of its customers are interested in naked DSL, but will still conduct trials. I see subtle pressure from FCC at work here.
