That's if you can call it a service.
AT&T has a problem, it called POTS, Copper lines, D-Slams add all the rest AT&T used to repair & keep working.


From 30 techs to 3 in 2022 for such a large area to repair & keep DSL for those who live out of the city.
The D-Slams have not been replaced only patched since before Y2K, the system is breaking down without any spares.

At one time DSL was the best & fastest internet you could get, & today it's as bad as it can get. You can not get a new DSL service
& if you quit it, they will not let you back on.

I get on and off service at best with the I-net going in and out. It makes no sense to call it takes a week or longer to get a tech to come out.

Anyone else having I-net issues?

As a retired AT&T employee, I agree 100%! They have NO customer service anymore, and want out of the business, they do enough to survive, that's it. Twisted pair/DSL/bonded, it's all a joke anymore. There is gig speed fiber across the road from me, but it's buried, no way they will push it under the road, they just say live with it.

What about the satellite providers? They do seem pricey for the bandwidth provided.
