My internet has been abysmal since moving to an area serviced exclusively by this "broadband" provider. But today takes the cake. Rather than load you down with a bunch of details, I'll just share a picture with you... Speedtest.net couldn't even pull a ping. That's how abysmall AT&T Uverse can be.
Anything worth doing, is worth over-doing.

I have, but that they've got the upper hand. Because of their monopoly in this area, my options are to let them schedule me for a service call a week from now and hope that it is still acting up when the tech gets here (0 for 2 on that one) -OR- ditch them completely and settle for dial-up speeds through a satellite provider.

That sucks, but it seems to happen a LOT in the industry. If you give them a call you should get your speeds tho.

The infamous AT&T UVERSE. A buddy of mine I used to game with had it, and let's just say I was practically playing with myself half the time. Have only heard negative things about it..
