I have been a loyal Cox Communications customer for several years. Over the last four years, it has been at my place here in Mission Viejo. As you know, the only choice for cable is Cox. Your only other non-cable choices are Dish or DirecTV. Unfortunately, my apartment balcony faces the wrong direction, therefore satellite TV is out.
Recently AT&T announced that AT&T U-Verse was now available in my area. You’ve all seen the commercials on TV. Watch and record a show in one room and then watch in another.
So why do I care? Well over the last year or so I have been having problems with my service. My router locks up, that green light on the router blinking endlessly for hours on end. A DVR that freezes in mid-recording on countless occasions. Holding for long periods of time waiting for tech support to remotely access my box to tell me to just be patient, wait or the 12:00 to come on the display then it should be ok.
Over it. Three times in the last week, my DVR has fracked up three recordings this week! Not fun.
So let’s dispatch the “only choice” in town and try the new guy.
Have an of you switched to U-Verse? Are you happy?
