Re: I am not the most up-to-date on upgrading UVerse Speeds will be a big problem for U-verse at some point. They use pair bonding for some customers who are a bit too far from the VRAD, and there are rumors that they will eventually use the same technology to boost speeds for customers who are closer to the VRAD. This is far from a perfect solution... it will require a truck roll to upgrade customers (and replace hardware), and the fact of the matter is that today's cable standards (DOCSIS 3) can beat tomorrow's VDSL2 pair bonding.
To make matters worse, the handful of customers who are truly on fiber to the home are restricted to *slower speeds* than customers on old copper and are very close to the VRAD.
