Told me there was a one month free trial but when I canceled they said it was for "extra services". The installation fee includes the price of the router they give you too so now I'm stuck with that. Scam

We got ATT after having Cable Internet that kept going up in price. For the price that if went up to you would expect to have excellent service, but as for that cable company it was not true. It could take days to get a appt, and sometimes they would be so later for it. ATT is not bad for the price I pay we get great service, the price is great, the only problem I personally have is speed.

i have the slow speed so i get the better price, but the 'promo' was not put on my bill in a timely manner. i had to call every month for 6 months to get it corrected, they even billed me for uverse which is not even in this area. i had problems with the service for 3 months, they tried to fix it over the phone and chat. eventually the repairman came to the house and replaced the modem. he was very nice. they were all nice, it was just a waste of 6 hours of my time calling to correct the billing. i have to call back in 2 weeks to get another promo, hope it goes on the bill correct this time. they were all very polite, i only got one rude person the whole time i have been with att since 1979. i wish the promos would last longer than a year and get on the bill correctly
