Re: AT&T is a bunch of F******* Liars!

That is true!

I used to have Comcast here.

It was alright, not great, but they didn't bother you when you download something.

Then Time Warner Cable took over.

One day I downloaded a 700MB Windows XP Service pack update.

The next week I uploaded large .avi files of video I filmed during our vacation at Niagara Falls.

The morning after I did that, I open my Internet Explorer and it redirected me to a Time Warner page saying my account has been found in violation of the user security agreement for downloading and uploading viruses, spam, spyware and illegal content.

I have to call in, speak to their security department and I also have to download several programs from the Time Warner website and install them on my computer;

then run them to scan my entire computer and send the scan results back to Time Warner before they will consider allowing me to access the internet again.

I called them and told them the only thing I DL and UL was the XP SP and the video avi of my vacation and they said it was illegal for me to do that.

So in other words, I told them, TWC is in breach of contract and guilty of false advertisement.

They advertise Road Runner is faster for downloading/uploading music and movies and streaming and playing online games but if you use it, then they don't like you using the bandwidth and then use the excuse you were doing illegal activities to cut you off from using their bandwidth.

I cancel their crappy service that day.

That was 6 years ago.

To this day, they still call me on my cell phone begging me to go back to TWC.
