Supervisor. Let me say that Iam not a high up at&t employee, i am a dtv contractor. Our supervisor has to do conference calls once a month with att and other contracting companies and he likes to fill us in. Sometimes these things are very true, and sometimes not.And who told you this ?
It's not that at&t wants to kill uverse, they want bandwidth to stream 4k, because on satellite it takes 2 transponders, and using uverse TV as a last resort frees up bandwidth on their existing infrastructure.
This is NOT a rumor, but exactly what at&t does about it DOES involve some rumors, so please don'ttake what I say as gospel truth.
