    Why i hate ATT?

    Every year ATT goes to PUC to increase my rates, because they do not have enough money to operate and expect me to pay more than $32 per month for a landline phone to sit there even if I do not receive or make calls and ATT has a monopoly on the phone lines.

    Now, I hear that ATT has so much money they want to buy the Spanish phone company.

    Question: If ATT loses money operating the Spanish phone company, will they raise my rates to pay for those losses?

    • Switch to Verizon. I don't even have a phone. Just DSL an they charge me $52.49 per month. I use VOIP with Magic Jack for my phone and that costs about $4 per month on a five year prepaid contact. AT&T has to maintain the phone line whether you use it or not.

      I pay $32 per month for my "landline" phone and I get unlimited calling 24/7. Please tell me about a cell service that offers that kind of service for that price and I'll dump my "landline." And who's fault is it that you do not receive or make calls on your "landline?" Is it also ATT's fault that you're an idiot as well?

      "Now, I hear that ATT has so much money they want to buy the Spanish phone company."

      I thought you said that ATT doesn't have enough money to operate.

      "Question: If ATT loses money operating the Spanish phone company, will they raise my rates to pay for those losses?"

      ATT has maintained or increased its dividend for the past 25+ years. They're no where close to losing money even if they do decide to invest in a "Spanish" phone company. Get off mommy's computer before you're caught.

    • Know what "inflation" is? It's actually higher than "Big Bubba" tells you. They excluded fuel and food from the calculation years ago. Halloween candy used to be in 16 oz. bags. It's now in 12.5 oz. bags. Tuna the same way. Companies have to keep up with this or go under. So do you. It's as old as time. The OT warns about those that "Make the shekel great and the ephah (unit of volume) small." It's a racket run at your and my expense. You can't have a gang of private banksters issuing fairy tale money from thin air and charging interest on it without having inflation..

    • Have you never heard of VOIP?
