The(re) is an introductory rate for AT&T shared line DSL service from Sonic. After a year, it goes to the standard month-to-month rate. You can call in and ask for a term rate (a year), which is lower than the month-to-month rate, but higher than the introductory rate. At least this is how it worked when I last checked.
The first part is correct - but the second, regarding re-terms isn't. We no longer offer a negotiated re-term rate, the month-to-month after-intro rate is the best rate we can sustain.
