Since they currently offer 24/3 service, why would they upgrade to 45/1 or 45/768? The profile being tested is 45/5 on a single pair. The higher tier service offerings will show up when they are ready to do pair bonding with the new NVG589 gateway later this year.

It would be a minimum of 3Mbps up, since that's what they have on the 24Mbps line. I definitely hope it will be 5 or more, but I am doubtful it will be over 5.

AT&T competes with Time Warner and Comcast in most of their markets...

Unless the upload speed is faster than 5 Mbps, this is an utterly useless 'upgrade.'

Time Warner offers 50/5 Mbps in their markets and Comcast even faster than this; so if this pathetic speed tier is 45/5 or 45/3 Mbps there is zero point in going with capped AT&T over uncapped Time Warner.

This speed tier will no doubt cost a fortune. They'll probably put it at $99.

AT&T's capped 24/3 Mbps speed tier is $75 a month - the same price that Time Warner's uncapped 50/5 Mbps speed tier is right now.

The only reason AT&T has any subscribers at all is just plain ignorance. They offer a slower service with bandwidth caps for higher prices than the competition.

I don't see how increasing speeds when uninformed people are the only ones subscribing is going to help. The kind of people who care about speeds, I.E. informed people, will be sticking with the competition.

So is FIOS. GPON is 2.488Gbps down and 1.244GBps shared among 32 customers.

Assuming 8 downstreams and 4 upstreams, Cable is 343Mbps down and 122Mbps up shared among ~80-120 customers depending on number of homes passed and customer penetration.

Admittedly a 300Mbps cable modem would place a much heavier burden on a serving group much faster than a 500Mbps GPON ONT does but it is unfair to negatively classify other technologies as "shared" and not admit the same of PON.

"With our plant technology advancements, 90 percent of our U-verse customer locations will have the capability to receive what we project to be 75 Mbps.

If you read this carefully, look at the wording. It doesn't say customers it says customer "locations". So if 1 customer can get that speed in a DSLAM, than it counts. There is only so much you can do with untwisted, unshielded wire that can be 50 years old. C'mon go shoot the horse in the back of the barn.

We all know DSL is no walk in the park, and it's total bs that AT&T is going to go around running another 2-3 pairs to a person's house to get adequate signal. I was reading about some loop technology (the person's DSL modem becomes a repeater), well that may work but now you have a big loop. How is latency going to be then?

I was reading about G.fast however this really needs FTTC and refrigerators all over the place and really only works less than 200m and less than 5 nodes. At that point why the f**k even bother. Just run the fibre already.

Re: U-Verse is 45Mbps is DOA

Bell Canada is already doing 50 meg VDSL2 to their customers, with 75 on the horizon (for users on remotes that support profile 17a), and is now deploying line bonding to extend those speeds to customers who would otherwise be too far from the remote to get them...

Not ideal, but since Bell is simultaneously rolling out FTTH, their FTTN deployments keep them competitive until FTTH arrives in those areas.

I already have 40/5 from CenturyLink (really at 40/3 currently because of a line problem in my building i'm fighting with the condo assn to fix) - My neighbor is able to do 40/20. This 45/5 is nothing amazing, especially if they're doing bonded pairs.

VDSL2 can easily do 50/20 over a "decent" line and 50/5 over a so-so line - all on a single pair. AT&T is just being cheap and using older plain VDSL1. They need to go with VDSL2 if they ever plan on actually competing.

I guess us Canadians don't have it as bad as we might gripe about when it comes to "regular" internet.

Certainly in Bell territory, it's 50/10 max on DSL, with 75 Mbps + on the horizon.

I have 25/7 at home (10 up is too unstable) and 25/10 at a rental I own. The rental's line stats are fabulous and from what I remember from a few months back, 70+ Mbps will easily attained on that line.

While DSL may have its limits, based on Bell Canada's deployment, I think it's still got a decent enough life span to it. They are actively working on their network, trying to spread IPTV and provide good speeds. They may not have the speeds that cable does, but at least in Canada you can get an unlimited 25/10 or 50/10 connection for what I would consider a reasonable price.

We don't have the blow them out of the water speeds available with some US packages, but we also have a much, much better DSL situation that appears to be the case in AT&T territories.

It might not compete on absolute top speeds, but that doesn't mean it's DOA. Only a small percentage of customers even subscribe to those top speeds if they can even get it. Price will be more of a factor. And I don't mean price per Mbps, but simply absolute price. I have a newer home with FTTP U-verse, but I only subscribe to the 12Mbps service instead of the highest offered 24Mbps service because 12Mbps is currently good enough for my needs and I don't feel the bump to 24Mbps is worth the bump in price. The fiber to my house will be able handle any speed upgrades AT&T throw at it, but I won't upgrade unless the price is reasonable.

The vast majority of people out there don't need those kinds of speeds!

If you ask any of the major ISPs what their subscriber rate for the higher speed tiers are you'll more than likely find that very few people subscribe to anything higher then 15 Mbps. Only the people who are geeks, want to brag about how fast their Internet connection is, have money to burn, or actually have a need for those speeds subscribe to speed tiers higher than 15 Mbps.

People, we are in the very tiny minority here. The average Joe Shmoe does not care if their download from Steam will take ten minutes more, they'll just go outside and water or cut the grass while the download is being done.

I have uVerse right now with 24 Mbps down. Would I like 30 Mbps or even as high as 45 Mbps? Yes. But do I need it? Not really. If I can get the 45 Mbps tier at a decent price then I may go for it but only if I can get it at a decent price.

One of the reasons I moved... was to get away from Uverse

Seriously AT&T. 45Mbps? In 2013. Thats laughable at best. I struggled on AT&T top 24mbps tier for 2 years while watching all the cable ISPs up their speeds well beyond what Uverse was capable of. Verizon announces a 500mbps plan and AT&T announce a 45mbps plan coming soon which is more than TEN times SLOWER. Who are they even competing with? I guess these speeds look great compared to DSL maybe, except DSL is generally much more widely available and is about two decades old.

As though the speeds aren't bad enough, the service suffers from higher ping than most other internet connections. Just a horrible service all around.

There's no point in comparing it to Verizon. AT&T U-verse and Verizon FiOS don't compete.

You can, however, compare it to Time Warner. Their top speed is 50/5. At least this would put them in the ballpark.

If it's priced well, it can even be competitively relevant. TWC charges me over $100/month for 50/5 service. TWC might have to lower their price if AT&T gets aggressive with their 45mbps service.

TWC's top speed is now 75/5 (technically 100/??--not sure what the upload is on 100Mbps tier). The 50/5 service is 74.99, you need to call if you're paying over 100. The 75 is usually around 99, though they sometimes have deals, and is only available in select markets (possibly only in Dallas). TWC also has a 100Mbps tier in Kansas City.

Seriously overkill...

So existing 24 Mbps Tier customers will get an upgrade to 30 Mbps. That's cool. Although I'd like more like 45 Mbps but that depends upon price.

That would put AT&T on par with Time Warner in my area.

IMHO, all of this talk about Internet speeds of 100 Mbps or more and with Verizon talking about 500 Mbps and Comcast talking about 300 Mbps is a bunch of nonsense. For the vast majority of people (95%), that's seriously overkill. There's really no need for anything above 100 Mbps. Most commercial software download sites can't fill that even a 24 Mbps pipe without multi-threaded downloading in which you make multiple connections to the same download site.

For instance, I was downloading PowerDVD from the Cyberlink product web site and I was barely downloading at 600 KB/s but when I kicked in the multi-threaded downloading I shot up to 2.4 MB/s. What does this mean? It means that most server admins are artificially limiting you to a specific amount of speed per connection. Yes, you can initilize a second or more connection to get more download speed in the form of multi-threaded downloading but soon server admins are going to catch onto that and start limiting the amount of connections from a single IP and some of them have already done that.

The last mile is finally catching up with what people actually need. Internal Internet bandwidth is something else. There are multiple choke points across the US in which there's just not enough Internet backbone bandwidth to handle the high demands we are putting on it.

Granted, I know that Steam can fill that pipe up easily with how many servers they around the nation but how much Steam stuff can you download?

They ought to do something better right now

A month or so ago, I was having some connectivity issues with U-verse, so the tech ripped out all my coax and replaced it with Cat5. Once he did that, my total capacity went from 32Mbs with lots of errors to 48Mbs with no errors. He mentioned that he's seen folks very close to the VRAD do even better, although I can't recall the numbers he quoted. His thought was that AT&T could ramp up the speed somewhat right now, without using a second line, if they wanted to, but, for whatever reason, they haven't. Now, I know that, even with 32 Mbs, you're only getting 24 because you have to leave room for TV, but, with 48, you'd have a little more wiggle room in terms of offering something better. Or you could offer more HD streams.

Or what about being able to allocate data dynamically between TV and Internet? Does AT&T's setup allow for higher data throughput if you aren't pulling TV data at the time? Of course, I'm sure they wouldn't want to do that, since it would confuse some people, plus it'd show them that the TV signal they get is all just a bunch of bits, so they might then start to think that they could get their TV service somewhere else...Aereo...cough, cough.

Pair Bond?

The techs cannot get iNIDs installed without great difficulty in most cases, and I mean most. This is just a giant smokescreen, they will never get even a small majority of the current subscribers on this so called upgrade. Only the good, stable plant will qualify, read stable. Whats in all major cities currently is old, the new stuff is in the burbs, and not to mention all of the old MDUs.

Like I said in the past, cable will be at docsis 4 and google will be in most big cities well before this copper nonsense is completed.

At&t can't even deliver 768Kb to my house... (phone line used to support 2.2Mb/sec down)..

But that all went away when At&t deployed pair bonded Uverse in my neighbor hood.
Next, Fext crosstalk was a killer during peak TV/internet usage times..weekday morning 7-9am, evenings 4-11pm, and weekends. (modem trained down 256Kb and still didn't work.)

Interesting that at&t deployed pair bonded Uverse for my neighbor one house down and across the street. Same cable, I have one extra pole, an extra 300ft of copper which disqualifies me from Uverse service.

So pox on your house At&t..

Can't let this go

How is this for unbiased?:


"Many AT&T users struggle to see 3 Mbps, so suggesting that 80-90% of U-Verse customers will qualify for these speeds is very unlikely. "


So, it is being implied that since "Many AT&T users struggle to see 3 Mbps" Uverse users would have trouble with said speeds. The problem with that kind of statement is that the users struggling to see 3Mbps speeds are on AT&T's DSL network and not Uverse. DSL users are connected to and are provisioned on DSLAMS that may be up to 15,000 ft. or so from the user's premises using older ADSL technology, whereas people who are Uverse users are provisioned on VRADS that are a much shorter distance from their premises using VDSL technology. This is a logical fallacy pure and simple, being used to put a negative spin on a technology that the writer doesn't like because AT&T chooses to use last mile copper. It is misleading to say that the speed limitations on DSL users would affect Uverse users, they are both subsets of AT&T users very much independent from one another.

AT&T's network is probably comprised of chicken wire and gum, honestly. The sad part is things like vectoring are finally allowing DSL (as VDSL2) to ramp up in terms of speed, but ISPs here have basically abandoned their copper networks and refuse to rehab decaying lines and upgrade node hardware.

Re: Oh lookie!

Yeah, to be honest, I really wish that with 802.11AC 1.75Gbps and DD-WRT people would just abandon ISP's all together and start creating their own mesh of WiFi bridging + Repeater Bridging, some antennas with amplifiers say that the signal can be broadcasted up to 1.5 miles away I know in reality that's not always the case, but if you could get one at least to broadcast omni-directional up to 1 mile away, and then in each direction drop another tower to broadcast omni-directional it could work.

To avoid regulations with the city you just pop the towers in the people's back yards that will bridge/re-broadcast the signal (As long as there's no regulations against towers in the city/HOA's to cause problems) and then run a 1 - 10Gbps pipe to the main source tower directly from a CDN or etc. For small rural areas or towns that have 50,000 or less population this could be ideal, sure you may need to upgrade the pipe here or there, but we could then stop having all our metadata sold by the bucket, and if the main source is constantly connected to a VPN (since you're creating a Wide Area Network) your encrypted to the source anyway.

Either way, if we as people don't start taking some matters into our own hands, and just keep sitting around whining about our ISP's, then nothing is ever going to get done that will satisfy us. We need to stop relying on government officials, and Companies/corporations, and start relying on ourselves......

Re: 45 d 6 up

Just to give you some perspective, 2200 feet can be as small as a row of 10 houses. then they have to build the next vrad.. Maybe not the VERY next house is screwed, but certainly house 20, 25, 30 are.. Why the hell doesn't AT&T get that this is stupid. Copper pairs are distance limited.

FTTP

The house I'm building is in a U-Verse FTTP development. Makes me laugh that both cable companies serving the area (TWC & WOW) will still provide me with higher speeds than AT&T will over FTTP.

That's great... so AT&T is "working on" 45-100mbps, while cable cos and Google are already delivering that and "working on" 300-1000mbps

They sure are. 24-channel bonding would equal 1Gbps down

ATT offers 45Mbps...

If you are 12ft from a VRAD and the weather is perfect.
