AT& hahahahaha well I am 330 ft from the bit bad AT&T box in my neighborhood BUT its across the street and its 2700 feet of wire to get to my house.
I do ok at 6mb on dsl but they could not get uverse to work.
Said there are soooooo many wire changes and splices and taps in the lines nothing is going to work.
SO now what.
Put in new wires and hope people go with them?
Yea we are cancelling dsl in november but they are still running $14 promo ads in my area for dsl.
Overall AT&T just rapes their users and pays the bosses big bucks.
Of couse when I see what the wireless morons pay and say thanks I know its a lost cause to complain or ask for anything better.
I like this statement but you didn't finish
$15/mo for a POTS line isn't a bad deal, nor would $15 + 6% sales tax. The problem is all of the additional taxes/fees that have been tacked on over the years.
No those fees supply the bribes they pay to the fcc and the senators they own, the rest then goes to the company execs.
The one good thing about dsl is the pings
and the huge advantage is my ping times in WoW have been cut by almost 50%. Makes cable look really bad.
I get pings even thru the spy system of about 60ms on bf3 my buddy on the same block with comcast is over 100ms.
