Our Woes with AT&T
Reference: aT&T U-verse A/C No. : ***
We have been using Time warner internet and TV for around 7 years now. As such there were no issues.
Recently, on the Thanksgiving day, nov , 2015, two sales people from AT&T came down to our door step and explained to us about an offer for $68 /month for the U-verse internet and Direct TV connection if we sign up for it the very same day. Please see attached Order Receipt for your kind Reference. They spent some time and did all the paper work (herewith scanned and attached) which shows the Power internet connection and the cost as 68$/month. They scheduled the installation for December 7th 2015.
The first AT&T technician came down on 7th dec, 2015 he finally set up the router, but explained to us that we were allotted two bandwidths and only one bandwidth was green and the other was down, showing red. So he had raised a ticket for the same and said the next day by noon it would be up.
The next day,on 8th dec, one more technician came over and fixed the problem, both the bandwidth started working fine and we could login and setup our U-verse account.
But the same evening, by 5:00 pm we noticed again the bandwidth 2 was down, we were not able to download files from internet. We just waited till the next day morning and we called the first technician and told him about it. He took our u -verse account number and said he will try to help us.
But even the next day, on Dec 10th morning, it was still down, so we called the customer service ourselves and raised a ticket. The very same day around 4:00 Pm another AT&T tehnician came in and fixed the problem and both the bandwidths were working fine after that.
For around 12 days we used aT&T uverse internet without any issues. But on 22nd dec morning, we noticed that both the bandwidth was down and we waited for around 2 hours to see whether it will come up .. Then we called the customer service number to raise a ticket about the problem , but to our great surprise, aT&T informed us that our account was cancelled! We explained to them that we never called or wrote to at&t to cancel services. We were forced to be on the phone call for more than 2 hours , it was transferred from one person to another and the same things and facts were explained and finally a representative said our account will be re-instated but the AT&T tech will be coming over only on 24th Dec, thursday. Nobody was able to explain why our account was cancelled and we were forced to stay without internet for 22nd and 23rd of December. I was supposed to work from home was forced to rush to office to complete some of my important reports and my daughter supposed to complete here project work was not able to finish her work because of this internet issue. We never have faced this kind of issue with Time Warner earlier.
On Thursday, 24th Dec, one more technician, Mr Brandon came down and set up all the connections again and it is working fine far.
After all this,we received a mail confirmation stating our account and the billing details. To add to our woes, we now notice that the billing terms are NOT the same as the one offered to us when we took up this on thanksgiving day! The rates are raised and again no one is willing to give us the rates as per the promised special offer rate of 68$ by AT&T Sales rep. We are now being penalised for no fault of ours, our account has been billed for $________ where as we had taken it for 68$/month.
We have had such a bad experience with AT&T so far and this is not at all acceptable.
I am a loyal aT&T Wireless customer from past 7 years, My Account: ***. Hence We want this connection as per the promised offer rates. I am herewith attaching the first email dated Tue 12/1/2015 7:48 PM received regarding AT&T ORDER CONFIRMATION and subsequently the last email dated Tue 12/22/2015 1:21 PM.
Request you to resolve this issue at the earliest. Thanks in advance for your consideration.
