I am wary of cell phone salespeople in mall kiosks with their promises. So it wasn't me who fell for their pitch but rather my mother and her friend when they signed up for AT+T U-verse. I had an ISP I'd been pretty happy with for the past 8 years that I had to cancel so people can save even more crap shows on the DVR. So far this service has been installed less than a month and the people who wanted it so bad are ready to yank it all out.
As far as the internet I've noticed it's been stable but download speed will drop considerably even though I could be the only one home surfing on a dedicated access point. Par for the course I suppose but the issue they are having with the main TV/DVR is that it goes completely unresponsive at almost scheduled times, and changing the box has made no difference. They've had a half dozen different techs out due to this issue. I could care less since I hardly watch TV but if they cancel the service they'll have to cancel the internet along with it, which does affect me.
Personally I find it comical that people can become apoplectic if they can't watch TV; calling and ranting at support. But anyway, has anyone else subscribed to U-verse and experienced this issue with the DVR? I know my answer would be "don't watch so much f--ing TV" but that would lead me to have to secure new housing in addition to the hassle of having to switch ISPs again. Help and advice wanted, otherwise post your own rant.
