AT&T scrambles to install fiber for 90-year-old after his viral WSJ ad | Ars Technica - arstechnica.com/information-te

AT&T called Epstein when our article about his ad was published on Wednesday last week. AT&T technicians knocked on his door the next day to tell him they'd be installing fiber. Yesterday, AT&T techs returned to finish the installation and set up his new service. Epstein is paying $45 a month for the first 12 months, after which it would rise to $65.

@twitnews AT&T are crap. In FL that price is $10 more? Not only that the fine print in the tos is that you allow them to collect telemetry data. You have to pay $30 more not to allow it and they explicitly frown on use of VPN. While speeds are bidirectional too much bullshit. I’m sticking with the old favorite with my Docsis 3.1 modem.
