First of all, let me say that my experiences with AT&T customer service have been absolutely enraging. The represenatives there seem to have been trained to be evasive and stonewall.
I signed up for "elite" DSL service. The agreement says nothing about a minimum term of service, but the customer service people now inform me that I have agreed to a minimum of one year. They were unwilling to tell me what the fee is for early termination. Does anyone here know what it is?

I think it is somwhere in the area of $150 but goes down depending on how long you have had the service. I hope this helps. My advice to you is to get service from verizon like I'm going to. They have good customer service and way cheaper prices!!

Does anyone have an email address where I can ask customer service this question? I must say that AT&T has absolutely the least useful website I've ever seen. I would like to be able to ask a question without waiting on hold for 20 minutes and then getting abused by an unhelpful, manipulative service rep.

I feel your pain. I am so angry with AT&T but stuck because of early termination. I tried talking to their people but got the "I don't care" attitude from everyone. I went to their website to right a "strongly worded letter" but don't have anyone to send it to. But I will have the last laugh in two years. . .

Unfortunately, you have to find the one good apple in the whole spoiled bunch that will actually tell you like I did. you should only be locked in for 1 year and they subtract every month you have had internet service from the $150 early termination fee!

I called AT&T to transfer my dsl service to the new location I was moving to. Apparently the agent said the new location didn't have AT&T coverage and was a Verizon territory. So I asked them to disconnect my service effective Feb 1 because i had no choice. The agent told me that I would be billed an early termination fee for doing that. Can you imagine that!?? What kind of policies does AT&T have!??

And not to mention I have been their DSL customer for 3 years now. I asked why I was subject to a termination fee and they said it was because I was put on a 1 year promotional rate. A few months ago, the agent who encouraged me to do that didn't mention anything about a 1 year contract. Argggh!!!!
