quote:Yes. On day of install, TW technician called me on my AT&T phone number to let me know he was on his way. By the time he left 30 minutes later, my same number was receiving calls over Time Warner's line. AT&T automatically stopped billing me, and even automatically decombined my wireless billing.
And you kept your existing number?
I switched to cablemodem before getting VOIP, so I'm not sure if having DSL on the line has any additional time implications.
Given that this is a DSLX forum this is going a bit OT. So for others reading, I would like to point out that my service with DSLX was always top notch. Hopefully someday AT&T will allow them to resell U-verse-based broadband so they can offer faster speed packages for speed junkies like me.
I agree - it would be nice if DSL-Extreme had access to Uverse, especially since AT&T doesn't see Uverse Internet as standalone.
The only real reasons for thinking about going elsewhere is:
a) POTS (yeah - I do use my phone number)
b) Cost of 'Pro' m2m approaching 'Elite', and I can't qualify for elite, or even a capped Elite.
As long as there aren't any increases in the near future, I don't plan on migrating, and it wouldn't be until at least August for a triple/quad bundle deal.
If it was just price, I probably would have 'jumped' at a bundle deal for VoIP and Internet from either AT&T or TW.
DSL-Extreme has worked very well, and is typically very responsive to issues, and I don't _really_ need higher speeds. I wish the DSLX could sell dry loop or Uverse, as their service has been very good for me.
