AT&T's computer tech just left my house.  Yesterday the AT&T telephone man was here.  Sometime before noon the TV tech is supposed to be here.  It's been a l-o-n-g 8 days but it will soon be over .... maybe. 

For two years I've been so unhappy with my previous supplier.  I sure hope this works.

Hope all works out with you, especially at this time of year.  People around here have been having so much trouble with AT&T.  I switched to cable, and it's great!!  Merry Christmas and good luck!

Darla -- I don't have words (or space) to describe the trouble I've had for the last 2 years.  I don't expect perfection with AT&T but I know it can't be any worse .... lol lol lol
As I type the Direct TV man is installing their little dish on my roof.  Wish me luck ;-)

I have AT&T DSL lite, they don't know they gave me fast, but I have never had a problem. I added a wireless router and it didn't slow down at all. There are 3 computers in use right now and no problems. Must be this area because friends tell me this is the only place around where their cells work great regardless of carrier. Must be a central hub or server nearby. Good luck with your situation.
 If sattelite is available it is almost as fast as cable but cheaper if you dicker with them.

Well - I had Charter for TV, telephone and Internet.  They've always said that they are very much faster than DSL.  Well, I now have DSL (I think) with Direct TV and I'm moving right along.

This is amazing when you think about it.
When I was a "kid" you had A phone and it was attached to the wall.
You had a TV with 3 knobs, one for on and off, one for UHF and one for VHF.  If you were one of the lucky kids in the neighborhood you had a color TV.
Excited when the remote came around but that a cord that ran from the remote to the TV so you couldn't go very far anyway.
Computers were something big businesses had and they filled a room.
Now we have little itty bitty phones we carry everywhere with us.
We can get stations from all over the country and the world on a zillion channels.
As far as the computer...we all have them and get frustrated when it is slow or down. I can "chat" with people all over that I have never met and call them friends.

I have AT&T and have had no problems.  Good luck, by the way if you are getting a special rate, in a year when they want to increase the cost of service call them up and negotiate the same rate you signed up with.

Wishing you luck with your new phone cable internet. I cannot have dish or satellite here in back of my apt only the front apts so have cable. Comcast and not to thrilled with them but that is what we have for this area. I had brighthouse in Tampa and was basically happy with it. Here some things I had free I have to pay for and they claim they are the best. Need to call and ask why do not offer certain shows free. And why u can not pause when watching a movie like I could with Brighthouse.

Thank you to everyone who's offered advice.
So far - 3 hours now - I'm happy.  lol lol lol  I've even had one phone call, lots of email and my computer is working.

And  I'm now going to be paying just $4 per month more than HALF of what I paid Charter.
I  understand nothing

I hope it works better for you.  I think all of them have problems at times.  I have Verizon DSL.  It has mostly been great... till it went out & no one could figure out why.  Husband talked to bunches of people & they were all clueless.  He did something to make it work again.  Did not even have to install the new modem they sent us.  But it was not a happy time.  I probably would have commited some kind
of crime if I had to talk to their customer service all those times.

Got the blu-ray dvd player installed, asnd switched the regular dvd player to another tv.  Our son got my husband and I fixed up with new g-mail accounts. After that the bulbs in the electric fireplace blew so we need to replace them.  Also I got a NOOK reader for Christmas so I'm trying to get the hang of it.  I feel like a techno-dinosaur.  However I keep trying to learn.
