you like to get high speed Internet from a company with "TELEGRAPH"
in it's name? Of course not, but if AT&T is your provider that
is just what is happening. A Google search of the phrase "AT&T
evil" brings up 940,000 results. Is there a single person in
America they have not pissed off? In 2021 comes news that they have
their network fall to pieces while charging customers more

is a dowdy old monstrosity that treated it's customers like cattle even
BEFORE it was broken up in 1982 for being a monopoly. Things are no
different now. Since then the company has basically put itself back
together again piece by piece. Now it is the 23rd largest company in the
world. In 2014 the Feds sued AT&T again, this time for allegedly deceiving
millions of customers by selling them supposedly “unlimited”
data plans that the company later “throttled” by slowing Internet
speeds when customers surfed the Web too much. Apparently somebody
at AT&T forgot to pay off a politician somewhere.
watched the American Telephone and Telegraph company trash my clients and
myself for fifteen years. When high speed Internet came out they sent
unqualified techs to people's home who broke their computers just trying
to put in a networking card.
Once they turned of MY
phone service because they owed ME five dollars. Five dollars!
Customers who requested high speed Internet in the early days found their
business phones turned off for weeks by accident instead. In 2014
I watched them put a West Hollywood music venue through two weeks of broken
Internet torture. AT&T made big promises about fixing their problems
without resolving anything. This deeply affected their ability to
do business and employees had to use the Internet on their phones.
clients who have switched away from AT&T are much happier. Warner
Cable provides very fast Internet at an affordable price and I like the
service. Do not be fooled by AT&T's claims about package deals
saving you money. It's called AT&T U-Verse: phone, Internet and
TV in one package. A package deal with them leaves you MORE dependent
on them ... more trapped. And if their signal goes out you could lose
television, telephone and the 'net all at once! Even AT&T has
given up on U-Verse and is switching itself over to DirecTV which they bought
of all, when I forgot to pay a bill for five days they took my phone number
I had had for 18 years and threw it away! There went my long time
business number. Then they sent me a check because they had been overbilling
me for that disconnected number for years! Idiots! I guess that
story explains this rant doesn't it?
