Internet update – AT&T Fiber vs. Xfinity

Well, I went 4 or 5 days with AT&T Fiber and the conclusion is this: It was one of the worst decisions I’ve made in my adult life! Here’s more about that

Well, as of today, I’m back on Xfinity and never expected to feel this much relief! I can now confidently say with certainty that I’m one of those poeple that can’t function very long at home without stable internet. This discovered truth makes me wonder how I’d do in a zombie apocalypse. Perhaps, not well if I’m being totally honest! haha

AT&T… thanks for trying! But you came up way short. And now I’ve got this annoying white box attached to one of my house walls as a reminder of the mistake I made.

What’s the opposite of an altar? Remember in the Old Testament of the Bible someone would build an altar to remember something great that happened in that spot, right? Well, this little white box is like that, except the opposite. Kind of like a scar. An accidental pregnancy. A dent in your car. A tattoo of your ex’s name. 

But I guess it’s water under the bridge now. I’m just glad I can have reliable internet again!

Switching to AT&T Fiber… biggest mistake of my adult life

I’ve had AT&T Fiber for about a week and I’ve come to this conclusion:

I’m basically paying $60/month to NOT have internet.

In fact, this post is happening by using the hotspot on my phone. You know there’s a problem when your phone’s hotspot is what you rely on when you definitely pay for home internet! This has become what I see throughout the day when I try to do anything on my computer.

Hulu and YouTube show different error messages than Safari, but they all mean the same thing: I’m paying AT&T to keep me offline. How many people can say that? Actually, probably a lot of people can, based on reviews I’ve seen. There are so many message boards out there with people trying to figure out how to fix the issues but my best guess is I just need to cut my losses and go back to Xfinity.

I know one thing for sure: this is NOT the freedom our forefathers promised us. I never thought I’d miss Xfinity so much. I’ll have updates soon, that is, if I can connect to the internet to make new blog posts!

Oi vey.
