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
let their network fall to pieces while charging customers more
for worse service!
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.
I have 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 world famous 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 just to book bands.
My clients who have switched away from AT&T are much happier.
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 in 2015.
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?
