Half copper/half Fiber

Can someone explain this to me? I recently asked ATT if uverse was ready in my area and they told me yes, but its not fully uverse. They said the internet will be half copper and half fiber. What advantages are there to that? Last time I had ATT it was horrible because I was too far away from the central office. Would this help that cause by any chance? Im just so tired of TWC and want to know if this would help me at all.

I am guesing they mean it is fiber to the local VRAD, then copper to your house.

Only if U-verse is provisioned at the CO. U-verse HSI is either ADSL2+ or VDSL (with very rare exceptions for FTTP connections). All DSL is constrained by the wire distance between the premises and the DSLAM. The DSLAM can be located in a CO, or in a variety of remote cabinets, closer to the customer than a CO.
