View Full Version : U-verse Coming My way.
12-22-2009, 06:36 PM
It wasn't but a few years ago all I could get was dial up internet out here. Then came at&t dsl. Which I have currently the 6.0. Then came TWC. Their internet was just to dang expensive for the speeds I want. Today I saw at&t trucks all over the place. I stopped on the way home and asked one of the guys by his truck what was up and he said they are getting ready to install U-verse out here.:eek: I am happy with Dish so the only thing I am interested in would be their dsl. Does anyone have it? Is it worth going for? I would like something around 15 Mb/s.

You'll have to see what is offered in your area. Some who were previously disgusted with uVerse may or may not be as disgusted now.

Frank, take a look at my U-Verse thread
I had them install TV and internet to get a free installation and then dropped the TV part in the first 30 days (so as not to be charged for the TV).

If you are getting the latest iteration in your area, 24mbit/sec is the max DSL with now 3 HD channels at once (plus 1 SD).

I had uverse for one week and got rid of it. the high def. picture was horrible compared to satellite. if you ask them they allways say they are working on improving it. how far they have come, i do not know.
and if i remember correctly, uverse internet is not dsl. dsl is a seperate product. the uverse internet is faster than dsl and delivered the same way they deliver the television signal. hence, the bandwidth restrictions they have.

The entire U-Verse service is DSL. They are using a high speed VDSL.
I have U-Verse Internet / Phone, no TV. I currently have the 18meg service. It's great!
Occasionally it'll go stupid, but that's usually short-lived.
