Re: all my neighbors get Uverse...so why cant i ?

Incredibly crazy situtation, but AT&T does limit the amount of users per node. It could be that they ran out of room and your apartment was the short straw and you can still only get their U-Verse rebranded DSL service.

What is "U-verse rebranded DSL service"?

In the 13-state legacy SBC region, DSL was, mostly, ADSL; offered as, "SBC Yahoo! DSL" service. This was/is ADSL using ATM and PPPoE. This service is not available under the "U-verse" brand anywhere in the present 22-state AT&T footprint. It is still available as, "at&t Yahoo! HSI" in regions which do not offer, "U-verse HSI".

"U-verse HSI" is not a "rebranding"; it is a service never available under either SBC, or Bellsouth. It is ADSL2+ using PTM and 802.1x authentication (making it a different animal from either legacy ADSL, or legacy Bellsouth ADSL2+ service).
