AT&T Spies for the gov.
I had major suspicions that my AT&T DSL modem was compromised with surveillance malware.

I had a wireless device show up that wasn't on my LAN- even when I had wireless disabled.

I had a handful of wireless devices showing up around my house that I knew were not my neighbors.

I couldn't go to any out-of-the-way forums that registered how many users were on a particular thread, without multiple users appearing- even though I knew I should be the only one on that thread.

I was getting security certificate errors with secure sites.

So I replaced the AT&T DSL modem with another device- took me forever to motivate myself to do it.

I've been fighting with it for over a week trying to get the pppoe connection working consistently- seems like AT&T was giving me connection problems with it. I think I maybe have it working properly now. Had to change some hidden miscellaneous settings.

The most interesting part of it all...
the handful of wireless devices around my house disappeared. Now it's just me (like it use to be a long time ago). I KNEW my neighbors didn't have wi-fi... I figured the wireless devices were wi-fi cameras used for gang stalking surveillance- but perhaps they were used for something else.

No more security certificate errors.

I can go read old posts on forums that show users on a thread and now I'm the only one that shows up.

In conclusion, I believe I was correct in my assumptions.

AT&T is some spying ass shit that's bed buddies with the three letter agencies. Fuck them. Their service sucks hard core anyways.

My next move is going to be paying for VPN service.

LOL. I don't even own a cell phone.
Here I have a choice between AT&T or Comcast- those are the only two.
Trust me I would have dropped AT&T a long time ago if there were any other choices.

Re: AT&T Spies for the gov.
Well, if you have any of the aforementioned problems (especially visiting conspiracy sites)
you might want to look into replacing the AT&T crap with a third party device. I think the AT&T modem definitely has NSA backdoors.

you're not imagining it

I realized that something was weird about my AT&T phone back in 2002, and at first I thought I might be imagining it...didn't really want to believe it

Then it was confirmed in an article a few years later, detailing how AT&T was one of the first to hand over customer records to the government, all in the name of fighting terrorism

thank the Patriot Act for warrantless intrusion into your conversations

a few links for you, you get the idea:
