  1. We still do not have att cell service since they sold their tower to Verizon. Have to drive a mile down to Soledad Cyn to have my phone get a signal. Been a couple years now.Don’t believe them liars at all. We’re bundled and could not afford second provider plus data charges.

    • Phone, internet, cell pbone, data, is with ATT. Had to finally get TW service for cable and internet. Both services drop internet signals quite regularly so I can at least switch to the other when it happens. TW drops TV cable signal a lot also. Dislike both companies– they all lie to get your money.

    • I was just wondering if this “new” service is actually what is currently available through TWC since they were bought out by AT&T… or if this is actually something brand new.

    • Wow. Would be nice to see the change. Every time someone has issues, they disconnect our service and reconnect theirs. Then complain, set a service call, they then do the same to someone else. Lets hope they figure it all out.

  2. Angel Reyes Angel Reyes says:

    Lol when does that start?

  3. Lee Jenkinson says:

    Anyone currently getting their U Verse through existing copper telephone wires should refrain from breathlessly waiting for fiber in their neighborhood. This article only applies to those new neighborhoods that have arranged to get fiber to the house via the developer. The vast majority of homeowners in Santa Clarita will have to wait until a wireless connection is possible, someone figures out how to run fiber based internet access through the gas lines or over the electrical grid, or go with Time Warner (or whatever they call themselves lately(kinda sad that your customer service sucks so bad that you have to change the name of your company rather than upgrade the service……).

  4. Michael Mueller says:

    AT&T sucks, we have a speed of one (1) on a good day at Hasley Canyon. It is almost impossible to watch premium channels or Netflix movies. Browsing the net is very slow as well especially if there are multiple users.
    Cellphone works only with a booster that we have installed and that drops on a regular basis.

    At the business in Valencia the signal drops at least four times a month.
    Yes, LIARS
    Where is there a good competition if you need it?

  5. Pat says:

    It doesn’t say if the high-speed Internet connection applies to the whole valley. I hate my TW service and the high bills and was looking to rebundle with Direct TV, but my son said it was not a good thing–Internet way to slow. Does this fix that?
