I am a former AT&T DSL customer, I canceled in Feb. 2012 due to it degrading very quickley due to AT&T phasing out CO's. I was informed verbally on the phone by AT&T and in the mail that U-verse was available, ok sweet! So I cancelled my DSL, and then proceeded to order U-verse. Turns out that it isn't available and that I had just screwed myself my cancelling DSL because AT&T wouldn't give it back to me because it was removed from my area, how nice! I then ordered exede satellite internet where I get around 15mbps download and 4mbps upload, that's not bad to my 1.5mbps DSL. But why do I want 1.5 or 3mbps U-verse? It does not have a strict data cap like exede. I hate the satellite internet I have right now, if DSL was shot out here I don't see why U-verse couldn't be, and the type of U-verse here is via copper wire instead of fiber so it is possible. Not only would I take advantage of U-verse, but so would my neighbors that are either on satellite or an LTE (with a crappy low signal). An AT&T technician, the one that installed my DSL 5 years ago said that U-verse would come out further than DSL, and did it..? No. Is it possible? Yes. I need U-verse very badly, it's pretty hard to do school work, VPN, videos, and other things with a data limit, and especially when you hit the data limit on satellite and are put under DAP which slows down everything besides emails and webpages. Plus latency is an issue, ping is average arounf 700-900ms on satellite. So if you have U-verse and are complaining that you can't get a faster speed, hush it cause there are people like me that can't even get it and live in broadband heck! But anyway, my main question is how can I get AT&T to extend it? Petition? Call the technician I know? Email CEO? I do not live that far out of town at all, it IS possible.
