  • Anyone use AT&T u-verse?

    I just got a flyer in the mail saying that u-verse, ATT's fiber optic service, is now available in my neighborhood with a phone, internet, and TV package for $99 a month for the first year. The internet is for a 3mps download speed, but they offer up to 24 if you are willing to pay about $150 a month.

    Minimally, I hope it will keep T-W cable prices down but I am wondering if anybody knows what the service quality is really like.

    AT&T is Fiber-to-the-node, so the quality depends on how big your neighborhood is. Mine is relatively small* and I can get ~600KBps down on most days. (~380KBps is the low-end.)

    Granted, that's without the phone and TV, so it could be lower with them.

    * not my address
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

      I switched to them from Comcast. Comparable speed. They often change their server settings and cause havoc with outbound email if the return address is not in their domain (this isn't a login problem - they actually flat out reject the mail - which is a real pain for my dot-mac account). Technical service is poor (they aren't knowledgeable and often automatically resort to making statements that they don't support your software when the issue is known to be on their end - and the issue often miraculously fixes itself the next day). Performance and reliability are on par with Comcast. The TV is better though (it is clear that Comcast applies a higher level of compression to the video stream - and it shows). No degradation in internet service with the TV.

        Thanks for comments, guys. I do not think I will change over, at least for the short term. I do hope Time-Warner will feel some heat and shape up a bit.

            how much are you guys paying?

            we're on time warner at the moment & pay ~$30/mo for digital cable + ~$30/mo for internet that claims a 10mbps downstream, but i frequently see speeds in the 15mbps range.

            haven't had any glitches w/ time warner here in NC, don't see a point in switching.

              A Couple months ago, TWC raised Internet only to $54.95. They boast 15Mbps but mine often tests out at about 3. Their explanation is that "unfortunately [I] appear to be in a neighborhood with many heavy users." This is not a geek neighborhood. However, they tell me I could upgrade to "turbo" for another $10 a month. rofl

                you can negotiate w/ local TWC reps (i.e. not national call centers) if they have promos going on... try and request a lower rate.

                3mbps is stupid if you're supposed to get 15. schedule an appointment w/ a tech guy to come test your line & then pick his brain about pricing.

                  We currently have AT&T U-verse. Love it! We do not lose signal and it costs me less. Glad we made the change.

                    U-verse here too 24mb down 3mb up. Love it can stream movies to the whole world without any problems or lag. Loading pages is awesome. Highly recommended and much cheaper than roadrunner

                      Just got it installed today as I had switched from Directv to Dish network. Dish promised me a certain pricing when I got my bill it was nearly 40 bucks more. I called to see what the problem was. They told me they never promised me that and I was in contract. So Att gave me money to sign with them to pay the dish cancellation fee. Fuck dish network they are lying pieces of shits. I was totally happy with directv but I was supposed to save nearly 50 bucks a month on my bill... I am pretty happy with att uverse the sports multiview is fucken dope though.
