Do not do business with SBC DSL if you can help it. That's my reccomendation. I just ordered the disconnect for my SBCYahoo!!! DSL service, and I got stiffed with a $200 early disconnect fee. Sit on back and hear my tale, and know why this is utter bull****. To start from the top, I HAD DirecTV DSL, (not satellite) and it was excellent. We were set up with it in no time flat. My computer was hooked up by ethernet to the box, and my girl's computer was hooked up via USB, so we didn't even need a router. The customer service was so awesome (which has been my experience overall with DirecTV) that they actually called us when we were having initial trouble connecting, and told us what the problem was. This was withing five minutes of hooking the box up. Sweet, absolutely the way customer service should be in the current electronic age. Now, in December (I think) we recieved very sudden notification that DirecTV DSL would be shutting its doors. They "reccomended" SBC for us. Neither my fianceé nor myself wanted to go this route, because we were tired of even having SBC on our local lines, because -- and I know they're supposed to be "the same" but I don't buy it -- since PacBell went to SBC, SBC has been truly crappy. Sadly, after calling every alternative DSL provider we could think of, we discovered we could not get anything other than SBC at our address. My dad lives only three or four miles from here and he has RoadRunner. No RoadRunner for you, fatboy! So we sign up for SBC DSL. It comes with a one year contract. In this contract it states a provision not to have to pay the early disconnect if they are unable to provide service at our new address. So why are we being rogered here? Because we are moving outside their service area..."But, they said that if they are unable to provide service the early disconnect fee doesn't apply? What's the deal?!?" Apparently, we have to move WITHIN THEIR SERVICE AREA for them to wave the disconnect fee if they are then unable to provide service. Is this not a bunch of crap? They crowd out every other service because they own the lines, force us to either go without DSL or sign a one-year contract with them, tell us if they are unable to provide service they will waive the disconnect fee, then charge us for moving where they are unable to provide service! $200 @$*&in' dollars! ARRRRGH!!!! YOU SUCK SBC!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, and by the way, in contrast to DirecTV, our DSL didn't work for a week after it was supposed to, and that was only after spending eighteen hours talking to their highly inept customer service department. I am not kidding. I spent all damned day on and off with them. BTW, this is a good time to mention that I probably won't be back online for a few days starting tuesday or wednesday at the latest.
