ChipNASA: Get a Roku, get Amazon Prime, Hulu and netflix and cut the cable.
Zombies ate my neighbors: I personally refuse to give any of my money directly to AT&T... so if this happens, buh-bye DSL, Hello god awful arse-raping cable company. At least the cable company doesn't use the worst possible phone system for support... and has local people in their call center. (In other words, they use lube).
dramatools: AT&T needs to concentrate on growing U-verse's footprint, because they get nothing from DirecTV, save for sticking it to CenturyLink.There is no value in building out DSL then selling Sat TV alongside it when they can build out VDSL. The only thing that makes sense is to bleed DirecTV's subscriber base as U-verse spreads, then sell the business and those remaining rural customers to somebody with a lot of money to burn.
JackieRabbit: I am also suddenly barraged with telemarketing calls and spam from non-AT&T companies.
Savage Belief: Dish > DirecTV
Driedsponge: I wonder what will cost AT&T more money? Paying for DirectTV or the volume of payoffs, bribes, and marketing it will have to do to get this to pass through both the FCC and the DoJ.
