Verizon to require landline in DSL package

Move will affect new customers

Verizon will require new customers who want its high-speed DSL Internet service to also buy a landline phone connection, a move the company said would allow it to better control costs.

The telecommunications giant told customers this week it would no longer offer high-speed Internet service as a standalone feature. As of May 6, people who want its DSL high-speed service will need to add a landline connection to their account.
