Re: I am not the most up-to-date on upgrading UVerse
No, you will not see increased speeds soon. AT&T will most likely look at anyone with more than 3Mbps down as having good enough internet service to satisfy the FCC's watered down definition of adequate internet access. Since UVerse service starts at or above 3.0 Mbps, they will not do any upgrades soon. DSL customers may see speed increases if they are close enough to the CO or DSLAM. AT&T only has to UNLEASH their ADSL2+ system and they can deliver close to 24Mbps down and 3.5Mbps up to some customers who are very close to the DSLAM. Most of the existing customer ADSL2+ modems and gateways should handle the increased speed adequately. They could create a 12, 18, and 24 Mbps speed tier for pricing.
