AT&T Shuffle

AT&T sent me another insert in my bill telling me about the wonderful services they can bundle together in my area.

This would be good if they could. Unfortunately, they can't, because they can't deliver Internet at better than 3 Mbps to my address. Today, after rattling around their phone tree at the number that the web page said to call, they offered me *satellite* Internet at a stupidly high price. Because living in the middle of an urban area, that's obviously my best available choice.

You would think they could manage to pull fiber. There's fiber only a few blocks away.

But there will apparently *never* be fiber here.

So it looks like I am going to have to get ready to jettison my DirecTV service in favor of Comcast.

I dislike Comcast, but I am learning to dislike AT&T more.
