AT&T: Biggest Criminal Enterprise in America

Do you know why the Republican-heavy Supreme Court wants to ban class action lawsuits?
Because huge corporate slime like AT&T are running the government, and the government's whore politicians select these pimps in robes on the Supreme Court to do corporate America's bidding.
In a few days, I plan to dump AT&T "U-Verse", after I was lied to and told my AT&T DSL wasn't fast enough to meet my Wi-Fi needs, but that "U=Verse would astound me with it's performance!"
I could literally write a book about the many ways AT&T has lied to me and screwed me, and I'm sure millions upon millions of others could do the same.

Dial-up Internet is unpopular because it's slower than a half-dead tortoise. If you have dial-up and a lot of luck, you can expect 0.5-0.6 megabytes per second (MBPS) of download speed.
DSL Internet service from AT&T allegedly was said to be a lot faster, offering consumers "between 1.75 and 3.0 MBPS speed." That should be enough to have Wi-Fi and most television viewing options live-streamed to your TV through a router. All but HD movies can work just fine at these speeds.
Trouble is, AT&T cannot deliver those DSL speeds to each consumer it promises it can.
They lie and I know they lie because they lied to me.
Fiber-Optics Internet service from AT&T was supposed to be lightening quick, giving "at least 5.0 MBPS, and even up to 7.0 MBPS, maybe more." It would literally end my download speed issues for good, as the lying sack of shit from AT&T sales told me.

Well, right now, my U-Verse super high speed fiber optics Internet service from AT&T is giving me 0.62 MBPS service.
That was not a typo--my super-duper, heavily advertised, highly expensive AT&T U-verse Internet service is working at early dial-up speeds, circa 1992.

After six solid months of countless AT&T tech support calls, in-person AT&T tech visits, in-person IT professional visits, and a million complaints to AT&T, it turns out to be one basic thing:

AT&T sells shit and services it can't deliver, tells outright lies to consumers, and makes promises out the wazoo none of them have any intention of delivering on.

Anyone know of any class action lawsuit againsts AT&T for consumer fraud that the SOTUS hasn't yet dismissed in favor of AT&T?
If you do, let me know. I'm in.

Report them to the Consumer Protection Division of the AG's office. But hurry up and do it before the really good investigators and attorneys retire because the next breed won't give a rats beehind about consumers.

Sorry--that dubious distinction belongs to somebody like Goldman & Sachs...

Hate to say it, but cable internet is the only way to go. I get 20 Mbps, and even though I had to sell my soul for it, it fucking ROCKS.

Goldman Sachs are definitely crooks but their criminal antics don't affect me as directly as AT&T does.
I never had trouble getting on the Internet because of Goldman Sachs.

Well, I think it's time you drop AT&T and look for another provider for your internet. If they are just going to tell lies then people should not patronize them and they should get out of business. The problem is they have connections in high places.

I cannot wait to dump AT&T. Two more cellphone contracts to go and we're done.

I got Roadrunner and it's super fast, for only $4 more a month.
Hate Time Warner but I love their Roadrunner division.
