It only applies to folks in the 22 states that AT&T serves, and you need to sign a 1 year contract, but check out what The Consumerist found:

As part of a concession made to the FCC in order to get its mitts on BellSouth, AT&T is required to offer basic DSL for $10 a month to its entire 22 state coverage area for a period of 2 years.

If you can’t find the plan listed on the website, don’t worry. AT&T wants it that way. They’ve hidden it, according to the AP.

Cory Doctorow makes a good point, though:

But even at $10/month, AT&T DSL should be avoided like the plague. These are the scumbags who illegally wiretapped the entire Internet for the NSA, who broke net-neutrality to find “copyright infringements, and who inspired NBC to call for a law requiring all ISPs to do the same (imagine — a law forbidding network neutrality!). Seriously: the only day I wouldn’t piss on AT&T is if they were on fire.

But, if you’re the type that can stomache the death star’s policies, $10/mo is a darn good deal. Just inquire about the secret FastAccess DSL Lite plan.

    I used the same basic principle but switched the candle for a hot dry iron and a folded washcloth. I applied some weight into it and made two passes. Each time that I was done with the pass I simply used a can of condensed air to cool it down. Then when I reassembled the bottom plastic housing I placed a small wedge of cardboard of the same size of the chip. Put it back together and voila, all is good.
