>AT&T is raising the base price of its DirecTV Now streaming service by $5 per month, despite promising in court that its acquisition of Time Warner Inc. would lower TV prices.

>Just two months ago, AT&T said in a court filing that buying Time Warner would allow it to lower TV prices. The US Department of Justice tried to stop the merger, arguing that it would raise prices for consumers, but a federal judge sided with AT&T. The merger was completed on June 15.

this is not so much about the consumer, it's about the asshole judges who so blatantly side with corporations. but then that's part of the definition of fascism, which trump has been working very hard to establish in america.

No, falseflag, there was both bullshit like this (both the authoritarian and the corrupt shit) under Dronegro and George II. Trump is just equally culpable, which is a more measured, reasonable reason he can still fuck himself for allowing this.

It was a very good idea. But I dont see how that relates to the price of TV subscription due to a merger?

It says in the article that the US state fought against the merger and lost.

You have to be willing to sacrifice to teach them a lesson. Competition for cable internet are mobile hot spots, with the data cap and throttling you wouldn't be able to online game for instance but you would have a cheaper alternative to cable and dsl.

Uh oh, the liars lied! Again! Quick, sound the alarms!

While they are entrenched in society and continue to give Americans an assfucking every month, we can still vote with our dollar.

Go with another service.

Seriously. ANY service. Just not them. I worked for them and I was a customer of theirs for about a decade. The prices have only gone up, and the promises of better treatment will continue to go unfulfilled. AT&T is structured around profit. Cold, hard cash. This means not giving you the customer experience they promise, and ensuring that whatever is done to retain angry customers is the bare minimum. You will not get credits unless you ask for them.

Want to know how I know? I was reprimanded for trying to help people too much for things out of their control. Meanwhile, us? We did all we can to make sure we got ours. You pay for the first month of service BEFORE the service starts, and the bill each month is to keep the service on, not to collect money for services already provided. A tech didn't show up? No recourse. We'll just schedule the same third party asswipes to cancel on you again (and say YOU cancelled the appointment!) while they go and get a beer somewhere. Your equipment is failing? Fuck you, we're not replacing it. Unless you want to upgrade. In which case we need the old one back so we can give you the new one. Also, that's a new contract we need you to sign, locking you in another two years. You want out of the contract? You have to pay an exorbitant fee.

And then there's actually working for these shitbags.

For all the talk of ethics and firm language forbidding any unethical behavior, it's fucking EXPECTED of you to give people the shaft. It's normalized. Otherwise you'll be fired for bullshit reasons (break was 4 seconds too long, for example) and replaced. Forget having other coworkers who do their jobs to make yours easier. They'll make outlandish promises and put you in the position of having to say "no, sorry, you don't get two whole years of all the premium channels plus Penthouse for free." Oh, and here comes the CWA to take a piece of your paycheck every two weeks so you can go on thinking they've got your back when the chips are down. You're already being severely underpaid; what's a little more?

Fuck ATT. FUCK ATT. Fucking lowlife, worthless pieces of shit. They are a paragon of everything that people hate about soulless megacorps, and a shining example of why regulation is deeply fucking necessary, but that's never going to happen since the regulators now have a financial stake in the outcome of what they're supposed to regulate.

In the case of mine, it's only because people threatened to leave en masse when they talked about switching from flat to metered connections.
