The Truth:


Jul 29, 2011, 4:00 PM
At&T press release: "Our network is so congested and sluggish, becuase it has poor architecture and we put no money into it, so, to make sure that we can keep signing people up and take their money, we will be limiting all of our customers unlimited data fetures by slowing speeds down significantly. Not doing this would mean we are not making every cent that we possibly can. We thank our customers for paying full price, becuase with us, the word "netWork" is almost an oxymoron.

I have 9 lines with them. No joke. I think I'd like to try Sprint again. Maybe they won't screw me again. Maybe.

Is this soft cap going to affect you?

Aug 1, 2011, 6:38 PM
Yes. I use regularly 20-60 gb. I've explained in other posts: I LIVE on the road. This is my home internet for all intents and purposes.

You have no idea what you're talking about and you've been all over this article spewing bile from your mouth without having a clue what's going on. All you do is say things that sound good because you're angry without really even knowing how this will effect you.

In other news, you skipped the two or three articles that were from the start of last year where AT&T put $19+ billion into their network. And the data transfer rate is still faster than what you can find on most DSL connections in the country right now.

Don't be so angry, kid. It's not the end of the world that it'll take a few seconds more to load pron on your phone. /pats.

pron? douchebag. ATT hasn't spent anything from the user's perspective. They have the same areas without service now that they did 5 years ago. I've been with them for 7. So shill to someone who's impressed with you. While they supposedly spent that imaginary 19 billion, they stole 1 billion in fake taxes and an indeterminate amount in fake data charges. So... whatcha think about robbery and fraud? Oh, and one more thing: suck it.

Simply boycott them if you feel that strongly.

As stated previously in other posts: I had Sprint. They pulled the unlimited rug out from under me once before. I'm hesitant to trust them again. Verizon isn't unlimited now. That's obviously with AT&T waited until Verizon nixed unlimited. My contract expires in October. At that time, Sprint may be my only choice.
