QUESTION: Last week there was a full-page advertisement for PacBell DSL high-speed Internet service with Prodigy. The ad showed the Prodigy logo and the TM (trademark) sign in the right-hand corner of the page.
I called the toll-free number on the page. The service is not available in Holtville, where I live. And the service is not associated with Prodigy at this time.
Can anybody in Imperial Valley get DSL yet? If not, when can we get it? — Waiting for DSL, Holtville
The advertisement was a mistake, according to Pacific Bell spokesman Brian Brokowski.
DSL is not available anywhere in Imperial County. Brokowski didn't know when it may be available.
When the telephone company decided to advertise service in areas where it is available, it inadvertently sent the ads to all the newspapers normally used. Included on the list was this newspaper, although the Imperial Valley is not slated for the service in the near future, said Maurice Luque, area director of Pacific Bell public relations.
