I used to really like AT&T but in the last several months their service has really gone to hell. The audio is very choppy even with good signal strength and the calls drop all the time. Knowing what I know about electronics the type of distortion souns like digital packet loss – in short – AT&T is oversold and running in excess of their capacity.
Additionally – my cell phone turns off by itself even with a full battery. I seems as though AT&T is turning off phones to save bandwidth. And this results in missed calls. When it comes down to it – I’m not getting what I’m paying for.
I’m thinking about switching. Verizon is on my short list. Definitely not going with Sprint because they have a bad habit of fraudulently billing customers and I’m not going there.
But – I’m sure I’ll have a fight with AT&T over the commitment thing – but the way I see it – they committed to providing me with cell phone service and they aren’t keeping their end of the bargain. So – I will at least get even by publicly documenting my experiences on the net for all to see.
