I'm not too happy with AT&T where I live in Ohio. They need more towers. I was at a restaurant eight minutes from my home, and the signal was one dot/bar then zero, no service. AT&T is better in Florida.

I have AT&T U-verse. The TV service is fine, but the WiFi connectivity and internet speeds suck! We just increased our service from 25Mbps to 45Mbps and it's still bad. I'm experiencing more problems now than before. I have an internet friend from Holland who has remarkable download speed of 147Mbps. We have lousy internet connectivity in this country compared to the European countries.

John, you have very good up and down speeds. Your friend in Holland must live in the future. He has unbelievable speeds.

john, i would give me left .........well any how , those numbers, are pretty good. compared to any service i have had yet. hopefully in portland my numbers jump.   and as much as we all complain. my first time online was with a 300 baud acoustic( had to put the phone handset in the cradle) modem. only had 2 places to connect mci mail , and dow jones...  even had to type in your terminal identifier , a for atari, c for comodor, or i for ibm clone....        one of these days 1gb will seem slow.

Wow...........that's going back in time a bit. Lol

The problem I'm having is when I open a window or sometimes when I just click an application, it takes a bit longer to open. Plus my WiFi sucks terribly. There are times where I have to turn off my WiFi on my phone and use mobile data in the house. None of this was going on before I upgraded.

I have a BF2 gamer friend who also works as a AT&T technician tell me: 

"Man I haven't seen a pair of lines that clean in a long time, its running at 47 % and 45% capacity on the two lines which is great, noise margin is low, loading is clean also, both which are good things, so what does that mean right,lol.  It means that either the gateway is not combining the signals correctly (my analysis) or that the port in the box 2 houses down is not communicating with the server correctly, my bet is the gateway isn't behaving as far as internet goes".


I used to pay $51.00/ month for 25 Mbps. Now I pay $38.00/month (50% off for the first year) for 45 Mbps. But after one year, it'll go up to the regular price of $76.00/month.

just looked i can get 105mb  , pretty quick, but i always hate it because the cost will continue to climb, and almost seems like it happens monthly.....    they need to post what it would be with taxes etc.... like they do with airline fees...   hope you can figure out where the lag is coming from..
