Re: What is the point?
said by Dogfather:I don't live anywhere near Comcast or AT&T territory (believe me, I'm very grateful of that), but I would imagine that the deployment is still on-going. I would also imagine that if there is no demand for the product they would eventually delay or even cancel deployment in areas where it hasn't been yet deployed.
This ad makes no sense from a business stand point.
I can see them spending the money if they wanted to try and generate opposition to the deployment, but if the box is already there, it's too late for this ad to be effective. As far as the customer is concerned, the 'damage is done' and they should just consider the new competitor.

Perhaps by "private property" they mean "private property without an easement"?

Re: AT&T should retort....
said by ptrowski: I count three.
Planning on and actively doing and lying about are two different things.
It sure beats the box one Comcast customer got I bet Janice Ordidge would rather have the VRAD box....
Re: I'm no at&t fan ---- but
said by Old_Grouch:Only three? you are lucky. My parents called and called and called and called and called (repeat 50x) and finally when they had enough they called at&t.
It took three days for me to get Comcast to answer the phone for a service question.
said by Old_Grouch:I did that for my parents too. My parents finally got tired of calling them. I just kept pressing digits just to see where it would go. Comcast finally took the modem back and gave them credit to their accounts.
And, I had to lie to the voice response unit and claim to be calling for new service to get past the "...we are very busy, please call at another time.".
Only took 3 months to do this, and only one post on comcastmustdie.com to get it accomplished!
I was impressed, should have done it on twitter. Probably would have gotten a faster response!
