I just moved from UverseTV to DirecTV, but still have UVerse Internet. I am being told I cannot buy my own modem, I have to use AT&T's and pay the monthly lease fee. I asked for a new modem to replace my 2 wire and am told I have to keep it until it needs to be replaced.
AT&T is the only provider that requires a monthly fee and you can't buy your own, won't upgrade it so I can take advantage of the faster wireless speeds for my internal use. How do you get around their policy? I may reconsider if I am stuck, there are faster speeds to be had where I live at a cheaper price, and I can own the equipment and upgrade when I need to, not when it fails or I die.
