Fuck You AT&T
Got an email outlining changes to my Terms of Service agreement. These provisions were included:
Service Availability: We have added language to clarify that service is not available in all areas, and may not be available at certain speeds (or at all) at some locations.
Service/Site Changes: We have added language stating that AT&T may need to modify or discontinue your service, either temporarily or permanently.
Conversion from DSL to U-verse High Speed Internet: We have added language to this agreement that will allow us to convert customers from our DSL network to the AT&T U-verse High Speed network, where available.
I may be over-estimating the impact, but it sounds to me that AT&T is going to start phasing out DSL and forcing the more expensive U-Verse on customers. I don’t watch TV so I really don’t feel compelled to pay for it as part of a U-Verse package.
It astounds me that even though there is competition for internet service providers and cable television that they are still able to make up the rules and prices as they go. Sounds like I may be participating in another internet black out.
