Well, after more than 12 years with Dish, I am being forced to leave. DSL through ATT is going from $20/month up to $40/month; so to keep the cost of TV & Internet below $100, it looks like I will be forced to get U-Verse.
Kind of messed-up: ATT is raising their prices for DSL, so I get to reward them by switching TV & Internet to them. What a horrible company - oh well, price is king.
I'll miss Dish - excellent customer service, great pricing, and a lot of excellent receivers over the years, including the 721 with keyboard (my favorite, I think). We'll see what happens in a year when my U-Verse contract runs out.
U-verse is BAD unless you're close to a VAR. I just pay $29.00 for Uverse. It's not DSL.
