AT&T has completed its $49 billion purchase of DirecTV. Are you currently a customer of either company (i.e. the newly combined company)?

Switched from one sister's cellphone plan, to another sister's. She has AT&T. So I'll see if they're as bad as Verizon. So far the Internet doesn't work as good as Verizon did. And dad has DirecTV. I just hope they don't eliminate the NFLsund

Sunday ticket. They'll have one pissed off customer in me if they do.

I cut off AT&T on my phone plan, was sick of their shit. On T-Mobile and love it.

Already had directv, hopefully they leave it alone

As bad as Comcast is, I've had much better luck with them and Verizon than ATT.

Does anyone actually like their tv provider?

Just ditched att internet and TV but still have cell through them. It's sad that 50% of the population is a customer of this corrupt as shit company.

Well say goodby to direct tv. AT&T is going to drive a great company into the ground and good luck getting any customer service. It's just the AT&T way of doing business " we don't care we don't have to"

07/26/15 10:16 pm

Att had some of highest rates for customer service.

My phone service is AT&T and my family has used direct tv for over a decade

AT&T can burn in hell. The company is full of shysters. 8 years ago we all signed up for an unlimited data plan and for years I've been throttled and now they're trying to manipulate my mom into dropping it when she goes to get a new iPhone.

They keep telling her she should switch from the unlimited plan to "save money", fortunately my mom is very astute when it comes to this stuff, but if there was a real competition and option to leave I would give my money to a more moral company.

She actually would save money

Used to work in an AT&T

Didn't att get split up into smaller companies? Now they're buying up other companies

Would rather have AT&T than crappy TWC.

AT&T for cell phones, home phone and internet. DirecTV for TV.

Att U-verse which is always going down. Can't wait until that contract is over to try something else.

No idea if it's available for you, but stay far away from mediacom. It's horrible.

I use AT&T for the data plan on my iPad. Our family phone account used to be with AT&T but we switched to Verizon last month.

I've never had either... The folks had AT&T way back in the day.

07/24/15 9:18 pm

AT&T WiFi service sucks!! Took forever to load anything. Glad I changed it!

07/26/15 10:18 pm

What is att wifi? You mean at coffee shops?

voc I am...what I am
07/24/15 8:42 pm

Att for cell and Internet, but leaving as soon as my contract is up.

Damn it, now they are going to bombard me with tv adds.

07/24/15 8:09 pm

AT&T sucks! Have had the unfortunate experience of paying them for way too long. Just got hoodwinked into 'Uverse' which has once again screwed up every computer/phone/TV in the house.

07/24/15 7:52 pm

was already a customer of both and have had nothing but amazing customer service experiences with them for years.

My dad has had AT&T U-verse for a couple years now, and we got DirecTV (and a horrible installation) in a bundle early this year. I hate both companies...

Had AT&T, switched to Sprint bc it was cheaper, but liked AT&T more. Had DirectTv, switched to Comcast, and like neither.

I think I'm going to get rid of AT&T because of this. I remember when they bought Cingular. How can they keep buying up all this stuff? It actually scares me a little bit.

I tried to get directv because I wanted the NFL Sunday ticket, but the trees behind my apartment block the satellite so I couldn't. I have Uverse instead.

My family's phone plan is with AT&T but I don't use Direct TV

Never had satellite TV. It freezes whenever there's a storm.

No. I look at a Direct TV now and then, because I hate Comcast, but they fall short in every way.

I'm a customer of both and haven't had trouble with either.

Casper Deep inthe Heart ofTexas

I have ATT U-verse.
It's ok but it's all very expensive & deceptive. Overall it isn't a good value but it's convenient & there aren't many options.

The industry enjoys its monopoly.
A little competition would go a long ways.

EarlyBird Portland
07/24/15 7:02 pm

For sure we need more competition. I'm just glad that so far, I'm a happy customer of both.

Now that they are one company maybe you will just write one check for half.

Probably using "coverage" wrong or lives in the middle of nowhere

No, I live near a city and Verizon has better coverage almost everywhere I go.

07/24/15 6:30 pm

Both and I'm fucking pissed. AT&T sucks. DirecTV didn't.

I'm tired of conglomerates.

07/24/15 6:33 pm

I'm with you. I had AT&T before and didn't like them at all. I'll see who want my business now.

ncbuc Get Over It
07/24/15 6:37 pm

Yeah, they're horrible. Unfortunately we're pretty much at their mercy since they're the only ones who have coverage where we needed it. Been with Directv for over 12 years. Have had the best service from them. Guess we can kiss that goodbye. It's BS

Never had AT&T thank god, but I do have DirecTV and it is wonderful. I only ever have signal issues in severe storms.
