Just a heads up
I am currently an AT&T U-verse television and Internet subscriber. I live in a new suburban community with relatively new fiber laid through out the city located in Southern California.
Every year I have to play the call and cancel game to get the newest promotion plan. Yesterday I called up and complained of internet throttling speeds and mentioned I had gotten gigapower / giganet mailers for my neighborhood.
The AT&T representative said my current plan of 50Mb speed could be upgraded to 100Mb AT THE SAME PRICE for a lifetime promotion. Uh, double my speed at the same price, sign me up.
Technician came out today, confirmed I had compatible fiber to the house and up to date hardware and it was a simple "flip the switch" command request put in by the technician between my Residential Gateway Modem and the AT&T servers and boom - internet is now 100Mb.
Technician told me that as an employee he was not even told about the current promotional pricing. That he was out on location with so many clients upgrading that he had to hear it from his customer installs to learn of it and called it in for his own house/himself. He said its only been going on for a couple months and did not know when it would end.
That being said, its 9/30 so hopefully it continues on into October. Call your AT&T service rep and request / threaten cancellation for internet and see what you can get.
