AT&T Business Internet Service (not to be confused with AT&T's mediocre
consumer-grade "Worldnet" service) is what used to be called IBM
Business Internet Service, aka Advantis, aka Its three pricing
plans are detailed here:

If AT&T haven't fux0red the extremely competent IBM setup, then you will
have high-quality, reliable dial-up access all over the continent and in
52 countries elsewhere. Depending on how much you use "roaming access"
-- your home region being one of 1 = North America, 2 =
South America, Caribbean and Mexico, 3 = EMEA = Europe, Middle East and
Africa, 4 = Asia Pacific, and 5 = the Peoples Republic of China -- I
figure it'll probably be cheaper than what you quote for Scientology
(er, I mean Earthlink), too.
