Let see if ATT Old Fashion Telephone lines can handle 4K TV, But I Highly doubt it, the best case scenario for uverse is one overly high compress 1 UDTV stream.
If you just want to say "phone line" without specifying UVerse, Bell Canada is doing 50/10 on a regular phone line (VDSL2 with FTTN), and line-level bonding should be able to break the 100 Mbps mark over a single 4-wire phone connection. 4K broadcast video with h.265 should require at least 20 Mbps or so to match the current perceptual quality of ATSC broadcasts on a pixel-for-pixel level.
In short, 4K video over telephone lines should really not be a problem, at least for users very close to the DSLAM.
I'm on 25 meg VDSL2 right now, and my line stats show an attainable speed of 62 megs, and Bell is selling the 50 meg tier today, so this isn't some pie-in-the-sky future thing.

Lets see at&t actually handle above 24/3 like they've talked about for years......

said by Guspaz:They would have no problem hitting 120 - 150 Mbps with a bonded setup. Add in Vectoring and that could be pushed upwards of 180 - 200 Mbps.

Problem is Bell's 50/10 VDSL2 is redundant since no one can afford it. Also Bell's futile efforts to keep up with cable speeds are a joke on wheels something to be laughed at.
