Re: Wow.. Now I'm glad I didn't get Uverse Internet after all.. Actually, they are still labeled different. It's not always obvious unless they are side by side on the same page... "AT&T DSL" (ADSL/ATM) vs. "Uverse DSL [HSI]" (ADSL2+/PTM) vs "Uverse Internet" (VDSL)
In areas where Uverse (either kind) is installed, they will not offer legacy DSL. If you are ever disconnected from legacy DSL, you will *never* be reattached to it. (even if you are out of range for any uverse. this is the often seen "no available ports" excuse.)

Well I haven't used At&t's aDSL service for over 6 years now. (I used Covad/Speakeasy bridged aDSL circuit during most of that time)
I'm 3.3kft from a 6ft high environmental cabinet housing the VRAM servicing my subdivision.
The max speed they're offering me is 1.5Mb/sec down.. which was the max speed for the OLD CO serviced aDSL service.
Thus, it's not a matter of what you think(they call it), they just won't connect it no matter what. At&t will try to trick to customer into thinking they got Uverse, when all they got was the old aDSL.
