A case study of the cable/broadband industry's customer service tactics, from the recent spate of Comcast recorded calls to our host's first-hand experience with new kid on the block: AT&T GigaPower.
Ever been signed up for a contract without your consent and then been told "no, I'm like...they read you those disclosures?"
It would be great if this show resulted in AT&T calling me back, making good on promised credits, or making sure their service would stop going out at random intervals.
