Uverse constant issues

I had uverse internet and TV installed in mid-September.  Although the service is great when it works, the problem is that it stops working about once a week.  I call tech support, they test the lines and dispatch an outside repair tech.  Typically the outside guy arrives a few days later, fixes the issues and then it works again for several days.

 

Im a a pretty understanding guy, and I've always been polite to the phone support techs.  I've never asked for credits or anything, but I am frustrated that I'm paying for service I can only use about half the time.  My service went out again this morning and now I have to wait until Monday before anyone can come fix it, once again it is being blamed on outside lines.

 

Any ideas what woukd be fair to ask for in the way of compensation?  A bill credit?  Free upgrade to a higher tv package?

Hello nws2002,

I'm sorry about the trouble you continue to experience with your U-verse service after multiple outside tech visits. I was able to locate your account and gathered information from each dispatch to determine what was done in an attempt to resolve this issue and will be working with you and the field until we find the source of trouble. I can also help ensure you are not paying for services you are not receiving during these service outages.

Re: Uverse constant issues

AT&T really jumped on it once AT&TCustomerCare got involved.  I had both an outside and inside tech at my home at the same time, which really seemed to help them narrow down the issue.  The inside tech was a supervisor of some variety and even left me his cell phone number to call if I have any further issues.  Turns out his mother-in-law lives just two doors down from me.  Although it took them a few hours, service has been restored and I have not experienced any outages or drop outs since.  They did rewire serveral things and pointed out areas that the inital installer did incorrectly.  That was irritating, but I'm glad everything has been corrected now.

 

On the compensation side.  AT&T has taken care of me with bill credits in an amount that I feel is reasonable.
