We have been perfectly happy with AT&T. We are not heavy duty users. Some gaming, streaming, but we have cable (fiber), wireless, and landline. The big problem has been getting repairs if needed. The technicians are great when they come and well-trained, but it always takes at least two days to get them out. Only had to call twice since we’ve had the service. The other problem is that the tv portion jumped way up after the promotional period. Am considering other providers.
