A routine upgrade to AT&T U-Verse ended up being anything but. The good news, however, is that everything works now, and I have a much faster upstream connection than I ever had before. If the blog is faster now, that’s why.
Almost everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. Long-standing problems with my phone line got in the way. The technician said he didn’t know how I ever had any service at all. It never had worked all that well, and certainly not as well as it did when I lived a mile and a half away. It took upgrading to new, costlier and more profitable U-Verse to get it fixed, but now apparently it’s fixed.
What do I think of the service? Ask me in a few days after I’ve had a chance to use it some more.
