03/13/13: Well nothing major to report. There was a slight increase in pricing (about $8) on my bill recently and sometimes connections drops in the middle of the night. Good thing it does not happen often. Other than that, speeds are as advertised. Wireless gateway is still bad (get a separate wireless router, set it up as a switch OR if you feel adventurous, enable DMZ for the router and connect).
11/03/11: Well after 2 days without service I was able to contact the uverse team and they quickly sent a tech to fix the issue. Note that quickly 24 hrs, which is great for a service call. The 2 day w/o service was my fault as I was being unable to call since they needed someone in the premises in order to fix the issue. Overall, the tech was very knowledgeable and was able to fix the issue within an hour.
04/20/11 pt2: Disregard... faulty [strike]switch[/strike] powerline adapter was causing problems. Speed measured from the gateway itself is 11.2 Mbps/1.5 Mbps. I had to go around with a laptop to find out what was causing the problem. Latency is usually under 40 ms.
04/20/11: [strike]Well switched from DSL to UVerse... it looks like a very bad decision right now. I 'upgraded' to their 12 Mbps package but for some reason I can't get more than 6 Mbps... in fact, recent speed tests place it in about 3.5 to 4 Mbps at this time (almost 4 am EST)... starting to regret this 'upgrade'...[/strike]
