'In 2011 AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson called DSL "obsolete," freezing U-Verse upgrades entirely; AT&T's focus is almost entirely now on wireless and they've surrendered most of the country in their once-heated broadband war against cable."'
No surprise there. That focus has been obvious for a few years. Only way to go.
I called AT&T Customer Care today, and after I pleaded with the lady on the phone not to drop DSL, she said that they are NOT getting rid of DSL. I was so relieved, I really didn't hear anything else she said.
