I can stick up for AT&T also. I had slow but reliable 6mbps DSL for years,went to Comcast for 4 years and hated every minute of it. Now I'm back on AT&T Fiber 1Gbps, didn't have to pay to rent their modem and they charge $70 flat for the service -no extra fees are taxes.
If i did go with their TV package, the first four set top boxes are free. If I went to Comcast, they would have charged $50 for the extra five TVs, cable modem rental, and another $30 in taxes, non government fees, an HD technology fee, a sports access and a network access fee.
