·AT&T DSL Service
AT&T slow DSL in Southern California, and it's intentional. And here I am with AT&T naked DSL in Southern California and all I can get is about 2.2 MBPS, and that's very flaky.
The reason is they intentionally bypassed my block when they put in the Uverse fiber.
They have a VRAD the next block south, half a city block away and that only feeds that block with at least 6MB service. The fiber that feeds that VRAD passed by our 30 year old box coming from the same CO.
My block, mostly at 1.5 MBPS or less. Could they feed my block from the same VRAD? Yeah, sure they could. A tech was in my driveway the other day and he said they sure could, they would need to trench and install some copper to the old box that feeds our block. It would cost them about the amount they make in 1.2 seconds every day.
But AT&T won't do it. Not can't, they just don't want to spend the money. My block is low density homes. The block south? High density apartments. The funny thing is, more than 50% of my neighbors subscribe to AT&T DSL.
AT&T doesn't care about good service. All those ads are just talk.
