[Line Problem] Problems with connection in Los Angeles

I've had Earthlink since they took over Netcom and DSL with them for over seven years. Most of my DSL problems for those seven years have been due to ATT's phone lines not Earthlink. Now I get several calls a week from ATT asking me to switch to their DSL. Two days ago, after two calls in less than 24 hrs, my DSL will only stay connected for about 20 min and I have to restart my modem. I've lost connection 2 times in the last 3 hrs. Is ATT trying to force Earthlink off of their system by messing with my service, or are ATT subscribers in the Los Angeles area having problems too.

I think AT&T has recently started a phone solicitation campaign. I've been getting their calls too. So I think it's a coincidence.

I have been on their campaign for over a year with calls from every month to every week to several times a week to 2 in one day. After the second call in 20 hrs my wife and I had a long talk with with the young man and got made it clear how upset we were. No calls for 3 days but our service went to k3ll...

I plan to cancel my over 3yr old Basic DSL this end of the month...I expect to be lured back and be added to this "annoyed" AT&T solicitation calls thereafter.But then again, the DSL provider I will switch to "uses AT&T servers", so they might give me a break on solicitations.

if you are having problems with the DSL we are only a forum post away in the direct forum.

Right now it's kind of quiet over there. Between me and MarkM See Profile most people are not even waiting longer than 24 hours from post to response. MarkM See Profile works saturdays so it's been maybe 48 hours on weekends max.

of course it depends on when or what time you post though.
