U-verse or ADSL

I currently have ADSL with at&t the 6Mbps service and love it. I'm a gamer and was thinking of switching to U-Verse just the internet but I here people talking about the line being interleaved and adding higher ping times. Is their no way to do Fast path with U-verse?

Depends on which "flavor" of U-Verse it is

All FTTN VDSL2 U-Verse (Single Pair or Pair Bonded) is Interleaved

All FTTP BPON U-Verse is Fiber, so there is no xDSL Interleave/Fast Path, but pings are single digit to your first hop, which is typically quicker than Fast Path xDSL

IPDSLAM ADSL2+ U-Verse, be it out of a CO or an RT/CEV/VRAD, can be provisioned Fast Path or Interleaved. I have seen both

So long story short, depends on which "flavor" of U-Verse you would be getting

If you post your info in the AT&T Direct forum, they may be able to tell you more specifics about your line and options.

Also be advised if you switch to UVerse, going back to ADSL later will be difficult if not impossible.
