AT&T DSL Internetservice outages, slow speeds

This complaint is based on long term experience, as well as recent issues.

At&t's internet service is very unreliable. Recently, we have found ourselves with only 1.1 mb/s speed, no explanation as to why. Service interruptions are also frequent and long, although service interruptions have always been present, they are getting longer and more frequent. The connection has high latency and suffers from high jitter, the quality has also deteriorated in recent months severely.

Support is horrible. The robot which greets your initial call is convoluted and useless. I have been hung-up on sharp at closing time, apparently the support technicians will not stay on the phone past hours, even to fix problems on at&t's end. Support is clueless, and runs useless tests everyone knows don't do anything. Tier 2 technicians are only available at certain times, responses are delayed by days. Tier 3 technicians come, do tests, than say there is noise on the line and that it is at&t's problem, but they can't do anything.

It's a good thing at&t has a duopoly here, i've heard good things about verizon, but they don't offer service here.

    I Have AT&T Internet Service It Is Very Slow I Have Spent Countless Hours On The Phone Speaking To Technicians Trying To Resolve This Problem . Not To Mention Online Talking To Agents This Has Been Going On For Almost A Year. So If You're Thinking About Signing Up For AT&T Internet I Would Warn Against It.

    I had DSL Internet Service installed in July 2009, this is November 2009. I never received my reward.
