DirecTV DSL No More
from the bye-bye dept
Trey writes “According to Broadband Reports, DirecTV has decided to can their DSL service, and today let plenty of surprised employees go. Their support center in Oregon was completely flushed clean, and employees for the company are commenting in the article’s comments section….” This also means that 160,000 customers are about to lose their DSL. Having lived through exactly that experience multiple times, I can tell you it’s no fun. For those wondering, no, I had nothing to do with the death of DirecTV DSL. It seems that my powers have been pushed onto someone else’s unlucky shoulders.

Are you sure you haven't had DirectTV?
LOL at your last comment.
After sending in the “I’ll never go back from Broadband” post last week, I’ve had the experience of having my broadband go down, and having ATTBI tell me that they will send a tech out in 2 weeks.
Serves me right.
Tim “rediscovering the joys of dial-up”
$%*& !! This is why I read techdirt...
First I’m hear of this…
I was a very happy Telocity customer and was very displeased by the DirecTV buyout, but the service remained excellent and even got better.
I can say this, if they do actually follow through with the shutdown I’ll also cancel my Sat. TV account as well.
No Subject Given
This is actually a big negative. As these viable alternatives keep shutting down, it looks like the only source of DLS will be your local phone company.
And when’s the last time any one had anything good to say about their phone companies service ? ? ?
Why tell the customer?
The first I heard about this was a phone call from my brother who had seen it on Slashdot.
There is still no official communication from DirecTVDSL to us, the customers.
