Ordered basic DSL, as a SBC retiree I get a couple dollars off per month so its a better deal for me. No hits or misses getting online and connected. Just went smooth. I did follow advice and not use the SBC installation cd. Decided also to not use the @global.net e mail. Felt I could keep the old yahoo.com and my other webmail. Thats the purpose, being able to change isp's and not change mail address, right?
I originally was told I had to purchase a modem, but that turned out not to be quite true. I got a spare one off e bay and wound up getting their new modem and having a rebate for the purchase price and only costing me the shipping. The one off e bay works fine, I would have not messed with their new modem and rebate had I known XP would work so well with connection wizzard.
I also have a single whole house phone/dsl filter. Decided having those plug in jobs was
I am running 1.3meg down, 330 k up. Very pleased with outcome.
2-25-06 Still 100% no problems, My speed has dropped about 30k each way for some reason though. If only it were cheaper. Still tons better than dial up.
05/09/2009 DSL chugging along fine, thought about upgrading a few times, but heck, I can watch streaming tv and utube fine so why spend more.
Over the last couple years I have had a couple of cable issues that SBC/ATT fixed, but no other problems.
I do not like talking to techf support in a foreign country.
One of my biggest concerns is if ATT goes to some form of measured download/extra charges.
02/08/10 Good ol DSL, still running very well. Still thinking about an upgrade, maybe later this winter.
08/12/11 Finally upgraded to Pro, Download speed fine, upload is a little off the mark. If I get time, I may give them a call on the DL speed. Will see after the week long period after the speed adjustment. (supposed to let the C.O. auto adjust to actual useage?)
I havent came close to hitting the cap on measured Downloads (yet)
May 2013, Uverse DSL only(not tv) now available here, life is too short to not try the fastest speed. I opted for MAX at 12meg down 1meg up. I live close to the Central Office so my speeds are at or close to MAX max.
I had a self install, and it went smooth. (modem swap and a few settings is all I had to do) Its been about 1.5 months, and everything working as well as could expect.
