So for the last 2 weeks my internet connection has been down more then it has been up.
It started on Friday June 17th.
Someone down the street from me decided to have a pool installed in there back yard....
As all things fucked up and underground go... they did a bang up job or cutting thru the fiber optic cable that handles the AT&T service for my block. And leave it to me to have an AT&T DSL service (cause U vision is not in yet, and Comcast has crap service when shit fails in my area to TN).
So from Noon or so on Friday June 17th thru to Monday afternoon (June 21st) the phones and internet were down for my house.... damn you really don't know how used to something you get until it disappears for a 4 day weekend.
Then last Thursday June 23rd (around noon) something else fucked up. AT&T contractor/phone technician (being helpful as they were or not) told us it would be monday afternoon before it would be back up.
Needless to say... it wasn't back up until Tuesday June 28th (around 9:30am give or take).
Irony, other family member called in to get re-embersed for the 11 days of outage for phone, internet, and to the lesser extent the dial out of our security system.... AT&T rep offered $15....
Lets see Internet service is $54.99 or some shit like that, phone is close to $45... so for 30 days we pay a $100 or so... and for 11 days of outage they want to give us $15.... Hmmm I'm really wondering how bad the service is on Comcast's Xfinity Triple play in the Arlington,TN area.... cause that was just a spit in the fucking face for an outage they could have fixed (the second one) 4 plus days ago (tech had to reset a unit in the remote station cause the remote reboot would not take).
Hopefully nothing else fucks up this week with AT&T or we'll switch come hell or high water!!!
