AT&T DSL — at&t dsl sucks
I got pissed at comcast for raising the prices on their services every 3 months, for over billing me several times and for the idiot customer service personnel. I switched my tv and phone service to ATT and kept the Comcast internet service. I am very pleased with the ATT dish network….off the hook….I don’t really use an ancient technology like the home phone but it was required for service, I can call 911. Serves its purpose. So 6 months later I get my comcast bill and it’s doubled per month. I was paying a “non promotional” $33.00 a month that went to $65.00 a month. So after talking with friends that have ATT DSL I went ahead and switched. Hey, my dish tv kicks ### so why shouldn’t the internet service? My friends have no problems with their DSL. From day 1 I have had shabby ### service. Having to reboot my modem at LEAST 10 times within 2 hours worth of internet time. (Takes 5 min or more to reboot). I’ve gone back and forth with the “finely - American - slang - educated, born with an operator headset fused to his ear “Joe” from Dallas India who answers to Ramesh.” (Who actually sounds like Beaker from the muppets on riddlen). Anyway all of the things that I have read on this thread about ATT DSL are true….DON’T DO IT! Comcast internet is WAAAAAY better. About 7x faster than the fastest ATT DSL speeds. (the actual speeds, not the advertised ones). That is of course you can afford a 1 Terabite per second +$3000.00 a month internet bill….like Bill Gates can….then go DSL.
ATT DSL has become too big too fast and does not, and will not in the near future, have the technological infrastructure to meet 50% of what it promises. That’s why the farther you are from the servers, the [censored]ier your service. The reason why you have to reboot the modem constantly is because you are getting blacked out because there is not enough room for all of the customers to be online. When you reboot the modem it pings the server and the server will re-initialize your connection to try and make you happy. But it will soon intentionaly kick you off the net again. Think of when cell phones were just getting affordable for everyone to buy, remember the service? Same thing here. If you want streaming video, are an online gamer, or download anything over 35mb,
[censored] AT&T. I said it!
I have never had that problem with Comcast. If I’m gonna put up with ### customer service, ignorant tech support and Ramesh from the telemarketer spawning land of India, I would rather do it with a service provider that is way more stable, way faster and way more expensive….COMCAST!
