I have had only basic internet and phone at $59! incl the rental, fees and taxes.
I had to drop tv it must be a year ago to cut costs. 4 days ago I received a notice that my deal on phone was up meaning my bill would go up $20 a month. I had planned to drop it as I never use it. I live in a senior community and realized I had many options in an emergency. I hate calling them so I chatted. It took me an hour to get 2 different people to understand I wanted just internet at the lowest possible price. The best the third person I was passed to offered the great deal $53 for both. They could not accept that I wanted no phone. And I would have to go through this whole process March 1st to get the deal on my inet. And I have had it happen that there is no deal available and gotten stuck with a $125. bill... Ca-razz-see!
I found the Att Home Solutions Dept and called. A very nice, knowledgeable, easy to understand man who found what I needed for $40 plus tax $30 if I had my own equipment within 30 days. Said the fee was raised to $10. And it was effective now with no phone and no hassle March 1st. Perfecto. He said I could search online to buy my modem and avoid rental some used, some not...just be sure it was uverse compatible. So I did that and I do not know what all the stuff means so I remembered the Forum. I started looking at the subject and it says other modems won't work or you will be charged lease anyway.
Any suggestions? Mine is a Motorola jvt579. I found one that was on a top 5 list at $30
others $60, $69 on Amazon. He said it just needed to be uverse compatible.
Any help would be appreciated by this old lady.
