Forum Post: My internet problems

I've been getting my internet from ATT U-verse for over a year now

the rate has increased to $40 a month

everytime I miss a payment, they shut off my internet and charge me $30

so far they've bilked $60 extra dollars out of me this year.

.

Cable is cheaper but my apartment doesn't have a line and my land

manager refuses to allow one to be drilled into the complex.

.

I'm going to pay the bill

Go wifi by mooching off (officially) your neighbors. Deniability is important so they must cry, "We were hacked!" if the matter comes out into the open (the cover is blown) but secretly they may appreciate the extra cash. If the alphabet agencies can monitor wirelessly, so can you access the internet wirelessly. There are many places where there are free wifi service. Think about libraries, sit-in-and-eat grocery stores, espresso shops, etc.

I considered those alternative and may use them in the future

for now I figured, it was easier to pay the fines that was all extra profit for the U-verse

Yes, executing a smooth transitional plan makes sense but never forget your prime directive even if you surrender to the corporations for now.

It is and it is not a conspiracy - forget that - it is all a conspiracy - a conspiracy to sign you up. Consider - you lodge a complaint - Who all on the internet - the all pervasive web - actually can intercept and read your communication and then any and all communications sent back to you.

The other apartments in your building were not visited - because - they did not register a complaint. BUT - I will bet you that all of your neighbors receive regular pitches to either up-grade or to switch service carriers.
