These ads on the AT&T email pages have been increasingly intrusive and distracting. . Pages are slowed noticeably by all the ad material downloading. Valuable screen space is taken up by ads for sleazy products and services. This is not good for the quality image of AT&T. I find myself constantly clicking on the little arrow icon to push them off the screen.
We are paying too much for AT&T phone & internet service to have to be subjected to a constant barrage of annoying and trashy advertising. Asking us to pay extra to remove it is adding insult to injury.
Maybe it's time to stop using AT&T email altogether.
