AT&T just got the green light to start unplugging the copper network across the US. Now they will start ripping out copper as fast as they can to stop the bleeding and get to a profit. It will be to little to late and they will sink to AOL status within 10 years. Good riddance to a scrupulous company that got away with hosing hard working people for decades. I was stuck on there 6Mb copper DSL for years that only runs at 2Mb unless it's 3am. I have been making calls for years about there broken service and been ignored, lied to, and generally insulted by there staff during the duration.
I just found a line of sight provider that can get to me here. Next week I am throwing a good bye and fuck you AT&T party when I get the new service. I have been waiting to make that call for what seems like forever and it's finally here!
