Re: Time-Warner for the Win!
said by cmarslett:What part of "U-verse HSI" isn't DSL? Everybody talks like DSL is going away. Well, AT&T ADSL is going the way of DOCSIS 1.1/2, to be sure. But U-verse HSI is DSL, just as cable Internet is DOCSIS. But cable is upgrading to DOCSIS 3, and AT&T is upgrading to ADSL2+/VDSL.
AT&T does not sell new DSL any more in this part of Texas, they are slowly killing it off - only "U-verse" (though they do have lots of web presence talking about DSL) and the cheapest they offer hasn't change over the past 6 months ($38/month for 3 Mbit, nothing slower offered, and no DSL offered in this part of the country).
No need in the S.F. Bay Area. I have ADSL2+ ("Fusion", not "U-verse HSI") for $19.97. No promo period.
So $25/month beats both by a lot! And it ends after a year, rather than going up...
It's a no-brainier, Google wherever they show up....
