I heard that AT&T has DSL that is fastest enough to watch Netflix via the Wii at just 15 bucks per month. But . . . I did not read all the fine print. I imagine they got some 'gotchas' in there somewhere! Does any one have ATT DSL and if so what do you think of their service and pricing?


Ignoring the question of it should should even be paying for netflix at all and focusing on the technical questions:

I don't have that pricing plan, but I was able to find on AT&T's website that the plan is 12 months only then standard rates apply. I would imagine the standard rate would be around $35-$40 a month.

You are also limited to 150 GB of data per month. My guess is that would be about 333 hours of netflix per month (with NO other internet usage. That's 11 hours a day, so unless you are also streaming music or downloading large files around the clock, 150 GB is more than enough for the vast majority of users.
