News broke yesterday right here on DSLReports(»Exclusive: AT&T To Impose Caps, Overages) about AT&T deciding to being implementing bandwidth caps on their U-Verse product. I feel this takes away from the products value and am adjusting my review to show this. I will also be leaving to go to the more superior product offerings of Comcast. Not happy about it, but at least their caps are a bit fairer.
Reinstalled U-Verse. Moved about 6 months ago to a location that did not have U-Verse available. Moved to my currently location about a week ago and had U-Verse installed today.
Service is the U-Verse Max (12mbps down/1.5mbps up). I get 11.5mbps down/1.5mbps up. No idea about my distance to the VRAD. Everything appears to work as expected.
just downgraded my internet speeds to the elite package. will save me a good $30/month. and i barely got more than 10Mbps on downloads usually as it is.
ok its 7:02am and my max18 is already in effect. just did a speedtest on speedtest.net and am getting a solid 18 mbps download and the same 1.4 upload that i was getting before. so they didn't break my internet when they changed my speed profile.
JUST ORDERED MAX18. It should take effect sometime tomorrow. will update after it is going. Wish they would've given a bit more upload.
Hi, I have AT&T U-Verse U100 (TV) & U-Verse MAX (10Mbps/1.5Mbps internet).
I previously had AT&T dry loop DSL Elite (6Mbps/768Kbps). Just so you get an idea of what I previously was getting for internet service. The transition between Dry Loop DSL and U-Verse went off without a hitch. I had access to my Dry Loop DSL up until the tech showed up at my door and started the install. The installation took about 2 hours. I had 1 TV, no DVR, to get hooked up for the TV side. as i already knew that I was probably not going to keep the TV side. With 3 kids, I just don't have time to watch TV.
The RG (Residential Gateway/MODEM) that was installed is a 2Wire 3800HGV-B. the STB (Set Top Box) is a Cisco IPN330HD. the STB is connected via Cat5 that was run along the wall.
The RG has built in 802.11b/g wireless, a 4 port 10/100Mbps switch, and 2 RJ-11 ports (for AT&T U-Voice).
if you have any questions about the service please feel free to ask me. I find myself having some from time to time and would like to share the little bit of knowledge that I have acquired.
