It says they are being quite literal when they say they do not have enough for everyone. And it is a special box and it is FO.

And here's some people griping about naked DSL service on AT&T's website.

 

I dunno man! Still sounds like I am outta luck...

Well, I know back in 2010 or so, they finally put up some updated technology for rural areas to get DSL in central Illinois. One of the recipients was a computer teacher who was still on dial-up at home. That was kinda funny!

 

Ah okay, yeah from what that article said they had to do some bypass to get the technology so you could even get DSL...

 

Would be nice! hahaha I haven't been getting anywhere for the last 10-12 years. I call AT&T EVERY year, even e-mail them. They just sent me a promotion through the mail and so I called them and asked if this meant they finally got to my neighborhood, they said no, it was just because I contacted them in the past but nothing has changed-that was in January.

 

By the way, as I said, I will be calling Rise, Century, Frontier, maybe even Earthlink...however, you have to remember, all those sub companies, including MTCO, rent main company lines. MTCO rents the AT&T lines in central Illinois so that the smaller towns/cities can have internet service. So, if AT&T didn't do the work, the other companies aren't going to budge, either.

AT&T here sucks... they're avoided like the plague...

ComCrap is the big player and thinks it can dictate to everybody and everybody.. we are in control mind set...

if a plan ''C'' can be had, that's what most here do...

FWIW.. Rise BB just decided to pull out in some areas and dropped customers like a hot rock...

It was an uphill battle for sure, but cable is finally willing to work with me!

 

I got a new mask but unsure if it is going to be much better, but they finally agreed I could give it a try and if not, we'll try another.

 

Got a stupid migraine, pretty sure it's from lack of sleep. So, I am out from in front of the computer to relax in a semi-dark room and watch a movie and then off to bed, I HOPE! lol

And trying to get used to my CPAP machine-I don't care what they say, they gave me the wrong sized mask and exhaling has a lot more resistance than it should, even though the relief option is on.

PM sent.  Hopefully the info helps you.  :P

See, someone decided to quit being nice and make a killing. If you remember when cell phones first came out, it was very expensive, then they FINALLY started making reasonable plans. Then internet was not very cheap, but doable. Then they finally moved to DSL and after a while, you could get that for $20/month. Then they decided to push HD and Fiber Optics everywhere so most anybody could get on it. Then they finally started hitting the rural areas. Then all of a sudden, they don't have enough for everyone, or cable starts monopolizing...but no matter what, they started raising prices again, and now it seems there is no end to it.

 

This package I got last year, that they threatened to raise prices...well, It went up to $71, BUT January or March, not sure the official date, the exact same package is going to be $91 plus tax. They flat out said it's going up $20 to average customers and I saw evidence of this somewhere. So, I am getting it $30 cheaper than more recurring customers. And it's not even worth that much! It's limited basic cable, hbo or sho, streampix, faster internet. Remove the premium channel, streampix, go back to normal speed and charge $40-50. Offer the 2nd step up in internet speed for $35-$40. No.

 

Oh well, I am not saving any extra money a month, but at least I am still status quo. I think the reason they raised it for this year, is because of cost of living increase for some of us, plus the lowered tax breaks. They think they know they can get their cut.
