  1. I’ve always hated the fact that these guys can control my DSL now; I’ve got to start looking for better options for me.

    This is a typical play for them, though. I entered into a minor writing deal with them for their Blueroom site and they said that I cannot accept competitive advertising on my OWN site (completely separate from the Blueroom). I asked them to define “competitor” in their eyes and they completely glossed over it.

    Apparently they think they can control the internet.

  2. Are these companies for real? They expect absolute conformity from customers even if there are legitimate complaints about their services? More disturbing is the idea that someone in the legal departments of these companies is patrolling blogs to silence customers who “tend to damage” their rep. So what recourse does a disgruntled and vocal customer have when their service is shut down? Apparently very little…

  4. ATT can lick my hairy bean bag. I’m tired of them lagging behind the times when it comes to Telco services and then resorting to legal trickery to keep their dominance.

    I have them for DSL, but there’s no choice. I’m stuck with them for a landline for the time being until they can offer naked DSL. Once that happens, no ATT for me. It’ll be a beautiful day.

  5. Please, allow me…

    AT&T is the worst telecommunications company currently in business. Their product offerings are overpriced. Their customer service is deplorable. And they are using the Death Star, from George Lucas’ Stat Wars films, as their logo.

    Love and Kisses,
    Todd – current AT&T customer

  6. Nick and Todd,

    As current customers, I think you highlight nicely the rationality of the Telcos’ behavior. Whaddaya gonna do…switch to the cable company? They also ride the high horse of a local monopoly. They can pillage their customers all they want and you can complain all you want, but it’s not going to change anything.

  7. A Member of Congress (Rep. Eshoo, I believe) read this provision to AT&T’s witness at a Congressional hearing today and demanded to know what AT&T was thinking. The hearing was on special access so the AT&T witness professed ignorance about this issue but promised to look into it and get back with an answer in 10 days.

  8. I hope AT&T get bankrupt!!

    They got here in Indiana almost a monopole!
    You cant get anything here if you got no AT&T phone number.
    I try for 5 month now to get DSL…..nothing!
    I try do get dsl over my internet provider(I got modem now with them)
    They say dose I need a AT&T phone number first.
    every where I ask,they tell me I need a phone number from them.
    AT&T provide for all of them this services,and let no one in if you have not there phone services!!
    what a f…world
