We canceled our cable and internet service because the price was just skyrocketing. Got the ATT fiber internet and Direct TV about 10 months ago. Currently in the standard 2 yr contract. Being as we're located in the Tampa area of FL we often have horrendous thunderstorms that usually happen in the afternoon and early evening that TOTALLY screw up or picture with pixelation or even go to black screen. This happens virtually EVERY day weather we actually have storms or not. We also have lost our local NBC local channel do to contract dispute between DTV and the local channel which has now entered it's second week. So because of this I want to dump DTV and go with another streaming service (Not DTVNow). We hopefully will be able to keep the ATT internet service. What would you say my chances of canceling without the cancellation fee because of the lack of reliable service I've received? Would it be advisable to contact a lawyer about this and threaten DTV with that. Or does anyone know what sort of hit my credit rating would get for cancelling and not paying the cancellation fee. We currently maintain a very high Beacon score. As you can tell I'm really peeved over this issue and intend to do something in the near future. Any help and thoughts would be appreciated.
