Telocity Offers Contract-Free DSL Service

Telocity Inc. contends it can successfully offer high-speed residential services without a long-term commitment.

Telocity (TLCT) Monday launched a trial of its residential Digital Subscriber Line services for less than $40 a month in select California markets. Unlike other DSL offerings, Telocity's introductory DSL offer does not require customers to sign a one-year contract for service.

Jim Morrissey, Telocity chief marketing officer, said the high-speed ISP is making it easier for California consumers to connect to the broadband Internet.

"Our total package of powerful features, coupled with our confidence in a no-annual contract requirement from our customers," Morrissey said. "The deal makes Telocity the only decision California residents should make."

Telocity teamed with Snap.com to provide a customized Web portal tailored specifically for high-speed users, including high-resolution graphics and streaming media.

Telocity's DSL service is available in Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernadino, Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Napa, Vallejo, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Santa Cruz, Fairfield, Travis, San Diego, Sacramento, Fresno, Visalia, Miramonte, Salinas, Monterey, Stockton, Modesto, Merced and San Luis Obispo.
