My only experience with AT&T was with my cell phone service which I changed to T-Mobile a number of years ago.  I'm sorry this has been an ongoing issue for you.   Good luck.

My direct TV dish is now used as a bird bath.

My advise is have a land line (physical) connection to the Internet 

AND

HOT SPOT capability with your mobile carrier. These should NOT be the same company.

Gabe,

I would be livid!  We did have Direct TV service when we lived in Napa, since at the time, we were know as the "last mile" area.  Would I use them again, No!  I do not know anything about AT&T.  Verizon has FIOS in Florida, but not in Stuart, just checked for you.  Best bet if it was up to me is AT& T,  A

I have had AT&T Internet in the past.  I had no issues with it and sorry I moved to Comcast.  Why did I move?  Cost. In the end, it was not worth it. No experience at all with Direct TV.   Good Luck!

Man that sucks!  I have a cellular hotspot for backup for these issues (through my phone).  Costs, but for emergencies it's worth it.  If AT&T can get out there and get you setup quickly, go for it.

Direct TV w/ no contract....

We had a Com&$)* call center.   I had a call asking me to go to that street taking 2 photoes of each room,count each bath toilets.Make adjustments on the repair. I told the default co the inspection money is OK there are no houses on that street. It turned out that call center did not pay its mortgage for a long time.  It is vacant these days. No, I declined it is at least 50K sf in size.

AT&T isn't bad but they tied you to a contract.  Direct TV isn't very good.  If you have a bad weather or just slightly stronger wind your TV goes with it!

We have the AT&T cell service and Direct TV in CT and love it. Of course, no cell towers, but use AT&T's "Microcell" device, which is like a mini cell tower in your home, albeit useless when there's no power.

AT&T may not be better, T mobile appears to be third choice. Verizon, Fios, Century, windstream, xfinity don't seem to have customers who love them.

Comcast posts they haven't got the towers back up, and lines down ( which they need to invest the money and put them underground in dry tunnel as these storms appear to be a trend not a fluke) If enough customers yell and walk, they will either get bought out or fix it right

My house is rural, no land lines no electric lines. I have ATT  with a booster, and ATT like all utilities is required by law to provide service. Then I bundle my cell phone and Direct TV (owned by ATT)  I have satellite internet through Excede. Call me I have a couple old boosters and a Yagi I bought but never returned - if one would work will send free

You know in my town, the village gets a cut of all this so they have a direct hotline for curcumstances just like this. See if yours does.

Sorry, I have none, if your cell phone is working can you use that as a mobile hot spot? I had a bad experience with Comcast charging me an exorbitant amount when I was moving away from Florida.  I went in the office and was  talkind with a customer service person loud enough so others could hear me.  A supervisor came over and said he would take care of it and he did!
