Re: Slow DSL Is Now uVerse

said by WHT:

Friend of mien in Oklahoma said he signed up for uVerse - in an area he knew AT&T didn't offer it.

Had him check his download speed - at 1.5 Mbps. Had him check the pairs used in his NID/DMARC box outside - only one pair used.

Appears that AT&T's differentiation of uVerse to be a high-speed, triple-play advertising concept...it's really now just another name for slow DSL.

There are two different versions. VDSL and ADSL2+. Both can run over a single pair.

And...the ADSL+ version can't support POTS or video. It's just a way for them to get out from under some archaic regulations and labor contracts. But they still call it U-Verse and you have to deal with the same idiots to order it as the full-VDSL areas do.
