The 1.5/256 DSL service is still offered under a tariff, which is why I believe it is the only service you can order without a commercial agreement with BellSouth.

What tariff rate? DSL is unregulated and de-tariffed.
It is also subsidized by voice services, since it uses the same copper pair.
Billing is miniscule (less than $1) because you already get a bill.
Their IP and ATM combined cost is less than $2 per subscriber.
The real overhead is tech support and the DSG (DSL Support Group).

It is? IIRC, the tariff price of 1.5 meg DSL from BellSouth is $23.95.
