AT&T Falling Behind - Must Push Upgrade Faster

[ Edited ]

I hope they push those upgrades they are planning faster since they're already falling really behind :/. Here's the Netindex speedtest results in our state. $19.99 for 16/2(25/4 boosts) or $25.95 for 3/1 :/?

And again, who cares. Only person that seems to care is you. So if you want Comcast, you are welcome to have them as your provider, and I am sure that there is a lot you can contribute in their forums regarding their service.

 

As for changes, ATT has some Ace's up their sleeve, that within the last two quarters of this year, and starting next year, you will see increased Internet speeds.

 

Matter of fact, Trendnet just announced a 1.8gbps Wireless Access Point at CES this week. That means that due to the 5 year cycle, you are going to start seeing more 2gb Networking products out in the mainstream for consumers, along with more equipment providers start introducing more higher throughput equipment for Internal LAN use, along with allowing better WAN to LAN throughput, so that means that providers are seeing not only what the economy holds out for them, but also what has been in the lab, is finally getting out to the consumers.

 

Trendnet's 450meg Access Point now is out for half of what it originally cost a year ago, so that tells you right there, that the equipment is getting out to the consumers, so that they are ready when the ISP's open up even more.  But in turn, D.C. is the final say in what is the cause & effect to when it comes to U.S. providers giving more or less to their customers.

Can you... uh.. please stop twisting my words around? Why are you acting like I'm trying to get people to join Comcast? I don't, I just want to try to get things changed. I just came here to say that they need to work a little faster and to look for information about upgrades....

 

 

To be honest, most of the "Awarded" people on these forums don't even deserve it. Whenever I go through these forums I see the same people "Awarded" people posting rude comments to people asking for help with how to find something. Only people who deserve it would be Somejoe, Texasguy, RCSMG, JefferMC, etc. They seem to be handing out the award like free candy. If you wanted to change my whole point of this thread you should of just discussed this with me in PM. I have no intention to say that U-verse was a horrible fail. It has so much potential that I would like to make AT&T begin to use (Which was the point).

 

Well, I guess this thread went down the gutter. Have a nice night.

Re: AT&T Falling Behind - Must Push Upgrade Faster

If you did not post on here glorifying Comcast, why would not anyone think that you are trying to get people to go over to Comcast or any of the competition int the market that they have Uverse in.

Sorry, but you are not going to prove in any fact, that no matter what, that Comcast or any Coax Pay to watch TV provider, still using old technologies to get the content to the consumer is going to be the best.

Go look it up, Coax to the home providers are removing SD & HD channels, left & right, or compacting them into as much QAM as they can, so they can expand the Internet capabilities for the customers.

Face it, Coax providers have ran out of bandwidth, and along with every trick in the book to make consumers think that they are better.

There is also a reason why when Comcast brings their corporate jets into the company that my wife works for, that services & maintains Corporate jets, that they do not use Comcast, Xfinity or any other name to designate who they are, due to people are not happy with them.

Greg,

  Stop being so rude to people who think UVerse isn't perfect.  Guess what, they aren't. But then again, no service is.  I agree AT&T needs to keep on their toes because other providers are starting to pass them by with their offerings.  The only counter point I was trying to make is that the prices he quoted in his original message are not accurate everywhere as I went shopping and couldn't find those $19.95 deals anywhere for those speeds.

Re: AT&T Falling Behind - Must Push Upgrade Faster

I am not being rude, I am stating the facts. That being that everyone chooses their provider for a reason. Going into a competitor forum, especially the Uverse forum that is not only this one, but the one over at dslreports, and down talking by some like the OP, stating that ATT is no good, is nothing more than spreading FUD, and doing nothing more than showing that the person hating on the service knows nothing about it.

As far as I am concerned, the OP is probably being paid or receiving some type of compensation from the competition to start topics like this.

You do not see those of us going into the competition's forums and degrading their service or talking smack about them in those forums. It is just that I get tired of the various topics that state such and such is better than bread and butter, and those like the OP, makes it sound all rosey, when it actually isn't.

If they actually researched their info before posting on here, they would find that the customer is not getting a better deal in the long run.

I can tell you this also, I switched from Comcast, because I got tired of them promising whole home dvr, more HD, better customer service, etc., and failed on all of them. That is why I switched to UVerse. I am satisfied with what I get, and actually am saving money more than I did with Comcast.

Re: AT&T Falling Behind - Must Push Upgrade Faster

I could not find those deals either, so that is what lead me to believe that the OP did not have their facts straight.

Can't you just let this thread die? You ruined it anyway. You may want to use your eyes for what they're meant for, reading.

 

I said since you cannot read

"And if you think I'm lying, you're crazy :smileyhappy:.

http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1120733/

 

Even though the threads are old, these pop up as offers often."

 

 

You said you didn't care about what I had to say so why are you constantly posting in this thread? You're ridiculous. You derailed my thread so much, I just want answers. You keep trying to move towards my "Comcast fanboiness" which isn't true. Just leave or something please? I just want this thread to die and you keep making it turn into a piece of dirt.

Re: AT&T Falling Behind - Must Push Upgrade Faster

Darknessrise, it appears to have hit a nerve on you, why elese are you getting so upset about nothing. As for old, it is not like this thread is over a year old. Btw, those fatwallet deals are not always what you think that they are, so you really neeed to read the fine print.

The deal is true :/. We have had the Performance deal for a couple months now. It was a 1 year contract for $19.99 first year then $34.99 2nd then reg price. I'm getting upset since you keep trying to tell me that I'm wrong and stating that I'm trying to do something I'm not. We had the pyshical ad for both of the offers in our hands with the fine print.

Re: AT&T Falling Behind - Must Push Upgrade Faster

No, I am telling you that there is more to a deal than what you see. As you have stated, those are contractual pricing, not a forever price. Even with ATT you can get a promo price if you talk to retentions, or as the case when I sent a DVR back, and the warehouse never marked as received not only did I get the $150 credit, but also if I recall, around a 15% discount credit on tv & internet for six months.

I get a corporate discount of 17% for cell, and every now and then can catch a promo for UVerse, if you know how to play the game of downgrade/upgrade packages.

Oh, I know that there are discounts if you get them to give you them. Just trying to say that U-verse is charging more for lower tiers on internet only regardless of if you're on a promo or not. What I am hoping for is a soon U-verse upgrade to lower the price per Mbps with not just At&t but surrounding companies. If they do as they say then competition will rise and prices will fall while the internet in the US will begin to grow. Cable prices began to rise again and At&t did nothing to stop it as they rose their prices too. I wish that EU broadband prices one day come to the US.

Re: AT&T Falling Behind - Must Push Upgrade Faster

Never will happen, due to these are privately held companies with a lot of hands in politicians pockets. The lobbiests are controlling D.C., which in turn you are seeing the return from it.
