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?
AT&T 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 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 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?
