CONTINUOUSLY INCREASING BILL SOLVED!!!

I am doing the buyout and it will save me over $60 for 14 months which comes out to a savings of $840 with same services with one exception.

 

I currently have "24 mbps turbo" with AT&T that drops to 1-2 mbps at times, and with Charter, I will have 100 mbps pipeline.

 

To qualify for contract buyout program order and install a qualifying new customer Triple Play Promotion or limited Double Play promotion (Note offers not available in all areas). A copy of the final bill from previous provider with early termination fees clearly marked and completed in addition to the 'Charter Contract Buyout Form' are required to qualify for the contact buyout program. Upon receipt of the forms and verification of eligibility, a check in the amount equal to the early termination fee charged by your previous provider on your final bill (not to exceed $500), will be mailed to your Charter service address. Contract buyout forms must be received by Charter within 60 days of installation of the Charter Triple Play or 2 weeks from the date listed on the competitor's final bill statement, whichever is later. Contract Buyout form can be found at https://www.charter.com/mycheck.

I am not a Charter employee, but am tired of the corrupt, shakedown, practices that AT&Thief has employed.

 

When I moved to an area that Uverse was available, I was super excited, but after the continuous billing increases, internet and tv failures, and broken promises, I have been left with no other option, but to switch to another provider.

 

I have spoken to customer service several occasions, some successful, but mostly, "sorry, a discount has expired".

 

I have autopay on everthing from my mortgage to my electric bill, but AT&Thief cured me of that as well, because the bill is NEVER the same, ALWAYS INCREASING, even when I supposedly had a locked in rate.

 

[Per Guidelines:  Keep it Relevant and Appropriate].

 

YOUR ATTITUDE IS WHY PEOPLE LIKE ME ARE RUNNING AWAY FROM AT&THIEF AS QUICK AS WE CAN...SO BYE BYE TO YOU.

First, there's no reason to scream. Second, he is not an AT&T employee.

 

When Charter raises your bill after promotions ends and when their equipment malfunctions, where will you go to then? AT&T raises their regular rates once per year. Any other differences in bills are because things like PPV are ordered or promotions expire. AT&T, just like any other provider, will not tell you when your promotions expire. It is up to each customer to remember "Hey, my three months free HBO/Cinemax expires next week. I need to call on Wednesday sot that I don't get hit with the fee."

 

But you've already said "bye bye" twice, so I don't expect a non-AT&T customer to respond here.

When Charter raises my rates, the rate will still be less than the "Discount" rates AT@Thief has been racheting up on me ever since the initial 3 months was over, so I will still be ahead, not to mention the fact, that I can always go back to AT&Thief then.

 

All I have to do is make it until the end of July and I can have Charter buyout my last 2 months, unless my bill goes above $250/month by then, which it might, at the rate it has been increasing every month.

 

Also, I am dropping my 3 lines of cell service as well, thank god I don't have a contract on them.

Case in point.

 

You sir have the right attitude to work at AT&Thief.

 

I hope you are being well compensated as your dear leaders are.

 

"Updated March 10, 2015 6:13 p.m. ET

AT&T Inc. T -1.01 % will record a $130 million charge in the first quarter from the retirement of nearly 3,000 workers and expects to add about 400,000 monthly wireless customers, driven by tablet subscriptions, according to a regulatory filing.

The telecommunications giant said the number of customers canceling service, the so-called churn rate, was lower on a year-over-year and sequential basis. In the fourth quarter, monthly service cancellations ticked up to $1.22%, from 1.11% for the year-ago period, amid tough competition.

Beginning in the first quarter, AT&T is updating its definition of wireless subscribers to include tablets, which were previously considered prepaid subscribers. Prepaid subscribers will now largely refer to phone customers who pay for service upfront.

In a separate filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, AT&T said Chief Executive Randall L. Stephenson’s total compensation was valued at $24 million in 2014, a 3% increase from 2013, according to a regulatory filing.

Mr. Stephenson’s base salary rose nearly 4% to $1.7 million.

Mr. Stephenson, 54 years old, is also the company’s president and board chairman. He has held the posts since 2007.

Total compensation includes pension plans and other personal compensation, such as company-paid life insurance premiums, club memberships and the use of company aircraft. Mr. Stephenson reimburses AT&T for personal use of the company’s aircraft.

Meanwhile, Chief Financial Officer John J. Stephens’s 2014 total compensation rose 36% to $10.1 million; Chief Executive of AT&T Mobile and Business Solutions Rafael de la Vega’s pay increased 14% to $10.1 million, and Group President and Chief Strategy Officer John T. Stankey’s compensation rose 33% to $10.2 million."

Baseballisback is also not an employee of AT&T.

 

In addition, who cares what CEO's and Presidents of companies make. If someone is willing to pay them a large sum, more power to them. The same goes for professional sports players and etntertainers.

 

Your long essay with all of these figures is boring and irrelevant to any problems you may have with AT&T. Do everyone a favor and switch over to Charter as soon as possible.

You'd be surprised how many of these people arent "trolls" but are genuine fed up customers or people who dont do their proper research. To immediatley slam someone and call them a "Charter employee" or "troll" because they don't share your same infatic appreciate for a service that can be lackluster to say the least is a bit lame in itself.
