Well, it’s not new news that a telecommunication company is trying to scam consumers out of their rights through changes in service agreements. I remember my credit card company sending me a new service agreement about 3 months after I signed up, now that’s a big scam.
Of course, as consumers we can’t really “prove” they are a scam unless we sue them together.
As for me, I am glad I got of the AT&T (Cingular back then) market. My cable and internet is Comcast and I use Sprint for my Blackberry.
As for AT&T, I have decided to boycott them long time ago, the only reason I write this is to really bring them down where they belong and alert other consumers that they are a bad company. (There, I said it in very plain English.)
Whether you decide to believe me or not is not my problem, but do look at that new AT&T agreement and you will finally understand you’ve been “had” again by the striped globe.
My personal suggestion is to boycott any company that sells you slow broadband internet service. (Yes, I stick by facts and know AT&T itself is all about marketing and hype)
Does your iPhone 3G has slow internet? (Wonder why? becaz AT&T did it)
AT&T just sent out an 8,000-word update to its service agreement, and it’s full of all sorts of lovely, anti-customer things. For example, now people will only be given a 30-day notice of price increases when it’s “commercially reasonable.” Also, you can’t sue AT&T. In fact, according to the LA Times, the whole thing might go so far as to be illegal. Oh, AT&T.
