Re: Cable has to recoup costs of lost TV subscribers
said by prairiesky:except they are not UPGRADEING, AT&T has never really upgraded, theyve waisted time and acted like they did but all they did was put more towers up and say (we upgraded our network......) true upgrades would be like verizon (which doesnt have congestion problems, no need for caps, and no dropped calls)
the more people use, the more congested the system, the more people call in and complain, the more call staff they need. The more upgrades they then need to preform, the more truck rolls they then have to make.... as a customer, you pay for everything the company does as a whole.
the whole FCC bill was made by AT&T and Comcast..., hmm, its true cable companies have the right to charge more with copper goin up and what not, but whats AT&T excuse????, there actual excuse is we are not gonna upgrade instead we are gonna cash in just like we've been for years
MA-Bell (AT&T) its the same as it was 30-40 years ago, same strategy
heck really in a way, i wish the goverment would come right in to this area, just like theyve done in everything else and say we run this now...
Cause whats gonna happen is slow broadband for everyone, small caps, and at this rate 10 years from now, all we can expect is small caps 31gb, and no higher, the internet evolves while we sit.
And we have AT&T, FCC, And Comcast to blame, cause they are not upgradeing, yes i do believe that the cable companys should be able to protect the tv areas.., but AT&T has no right, our goverment gives AT&T money every year, and AT&T wants to BUY T-mobile?? give me a break, also why cap AT&T U-verse?? that makes no scence its not congrestion, AT&T has a problem with the revunue and they have a nice little plan already set for the next ten years with T-mobile and caps
