Screwed again! Have to buy "new" equipment after just buying new equipment?

Okay, so a few months ago I upgraded to Uverse and I had to buy the new equipment.  No problem, I still had the old DSL equipment so that was fine.  So now I'm moving about ten minutes from where I currently live and I'm told that I have to buy new equipment again?  Are you serious?  I just bought new equipment 4 months ago!  Is it ATT's goal to screw everyone over because that seems like their main purpose.  Did anyone else get screwed over like this?

Send them a private message, on this link, and they should be able to give the help needed to solve your problems. They are available M-F 8am-11pm EST. This is not the regular CS/TS people, but the social media people that know the people to contact to get things done. I personally know as they've helped me on a DVR swap.

Include your account#, email address and a good phone # (land or cell) and time to contact you on.

Check the blue PM envelope, upper right, in case they replied this way. Good luck Smiley Wink

It may actually be necessary for you to purchase new equipment if the type of service (VDSL2 vs ADSL2+) is different between the two locations.  If your current U-verse equipment is compatible with the service at the new location, you should be able to move it and not purchase another.  AT&T has some attractive move specials going on, too.

 

Please, follow the advice in the above post and contact the Social Customer Care team.  They should be able to help you.
