Very happy with my AT&T UVerse install so far.
Ordered Uverse on 10/12/09 with an install date of 10/26/09.
Tech called me about 11:30 am on his way here from his previous job (my window was 11a-1pm).
Tech showed up. We chatted a few.. I have DT (POTS) so he checked my phone heard the DT then said he needed to go jumper (at the VRAD)
He was gone a few mins and then came back... brought the equipment including his test set.. Could get DT but could not see a responce back from the VRAD.. so he headed out again after checking the wiring in the MDU ( We chatted about how aweful MDU wiring can be) ... etc...
He went out and sure enough the place he jumpered on the VRAD was bad ( he said he sees this often on a lot of VRADs) I chuckled and said "it's amazing that this technology works on such old phone system.."
He then replaced my wall plate (installing a baun in the wall to seperate the POTS from the jack for the UVerse RG)
Then he setup the RG and the DVR box... while he did that (I was talking tech with him as I do support for a cable company in another state) while he finished setting up the DVR I configured my laptop with the provided SSID and WPA key... and we where online
Great install.. Overall I am very pleased with the service. the 6 MB / 1MB is on target with the speed tests and so far the DVR is working wonderful and the picture (even on my SD TV) is better than what I had with Digital cable with Time Warner.
Currently subscribing to UVerse U200 for Video and 6MB/1MB for the Data.
Update 03/12/12 : I got rid of DVR in NOV 09 due to cost... Finally moving to cable 3/12. Uverse was nice but I really want a higher bandwidth package than 24/3 and AT*T seems not willing to update to Fiber to support DOCSIS 3 type speeds.
Update 10/1/12 : Signed back up with UVerse for HSI. Great service so far (64mbps sync as I am only a stones throw away from the VRAD)
Constant speed on the 18M down / 1.5M up Tier - Little pricey $56.00 a month and they started to charge a $6.00 equipment fee.
Downgraded on 4/10/13 to 3M down / 1M up Tier .. Looking at cable again as DOCSIS 3 will be here this summer and offer faster tier speeds.
