Warning: ATT U-verse customer service sucks. If there is a problem, and there are going to be, when you call customer service you get snarky, rude, sarcastic High-school drop-outs who can't help you and wish you wouldn't bother them. Their door-to-door sales people are not ATT employees, they're contractors, so ATT doesn't feel that they are responsible for the lies they tell.
I live in Roanoke, TX and last Oct. we signed up and ATT came out to install U-verse. They couldn't get it to work and eventually decided we were too far from "the box". In the process they disconnected our current cable/internet/phone bundle and we were without service for a day and a half.
Big hassle, no apologies.
Fast forward to earlier this month, ATT salesman (contractor) comes around again making all kinds of promises, saying they’ve fixed the problems with the range and that he guarantees us we can get service now.
Today they show up to install U-verse and it’s the same story, we’re too far from the box, and they’ve had our current cable/internet/phone service turned off so they could “port” our phone number to their service.
Unbelievable, what a screwed up company. The box is apparently on the main street coming into our neighborhood just outside the neighborhood, we’re on the 2nd street into the neighborhood 4 houses from the main street where they ran the fiber, so if we’re too far from the box then 90% of the neighborhood is also. Why bother to run fiber down the middle of the neighborhood if you can connect any homes to it? What a way to do business.
Oh, and did I mention their customer service sucks? I’ve now wasted 2 days and still have to get my service with my current provider re-connected, which by the way I DID NOT request to have turned off. ATT had it turned off.
