AT&T Uverse Bitch Session
I mentioned yesterday my internet and phone is being switched to AT&T's uverse system. I'm not sure just how it works but, to hear them tell about it, it's much faster and will save me money- considerable money from what I could understand from the guy on the phone. I had a hard time understanding him but it sounded like maybe saving close to half of what I currently pay for internet and landline.
Call me skeptical in regards being much faster as I don't see how it could be using the same hardware. But, my bum nephew, who fancies himself an expert on all things computer, claims it will be a lot faster. Of course, he often opines about things he has no personal experience with and he's with Suddenlink for internet, not AT&T.
He did say there might be a conflict between uverse and my modem. Maybe especially so since he came by yesterday and installed a wifi router- Yes, I now have wifi. But, I pointed out to him some AT&T service guy is supposed to come by to complete the transition to uverse so he'll hopefully be able to clear up any problems and make sure it works right. "Hopefully" being the key word.
So here's your special spot to run down AT&T uverse. Comment about it all you want, but let's try and keep it clean.
P.S: In regards wifi, I'm not a big fan of wifi and think it's over rated. I don't like having whatever I'm doing on the computer broadcast out to points unknown. But, it would be nice to use my wifi- only tablet while out in the garage and this wifi connection seems to extend out there strongly enough. The first thing I tried to do with it was download a program to my tablet. I couldn't get it to work but I think it was more a problem with the tablet than the wifi connection. We'll try that again later today.
