Why is uverse so expensive to implement?
There are plenty of large sized urban AT&T communities without uverse. I just don't get why the costs are that outrageous. It's not like they have to dig up people's yards to get fiber to the home.
Despite what you may feel about fiber to the node, it is at least better than the current reality with AT&T dsl.
This whole system is just so broken. The government is nowhere to be seen and is about to rubber stamp yet another uncompetitive deal with Verizon and the cable companies. I'm at the point where I think AT&T and Verizon should be forced to spin off their entire landline business.
It really just puts everything into perspective that these Telcos are letting everything else die in favor of AT&T Wireless and Verizon Wireless.
