Currently I have DSL with ATT.
Actually I started out with SBC global who was bought over by ATT.
I wouldn’t say I’m cynical by nature but I do feel big businesses like the phone company and cable companies and especially the cellphone providers are always out to squeeze something out of your wallet when you’re not paying attention.
How else can it explain why my internet speed is dropping gradually?
The DSL plan I’m paying for is supposed to be 6Mbs–the top speed offered.
Today I ran a test and found I was only downloading at 1287kbps!
I confirmed this by running a test at DSL reports as well.
I won’t even bother with the uploading speed. Someone is throttling back speeds.
Mind you, I just ran this test a few minutes ago and the kids aren’t online playing any games.Â No one else is using the LAN.
It’s no coincidence either that ATT has very pushy andÂ racking up their campaign to sell ATT U Verse in my neighborhood.
The thing is this: switching to ATT UVerse is not the problem. It’s just that the plan onlyÂ comes with TV service.
I hardly watch TV, so I don’t like the feeling that they’re not giving me a choice.
