Re: I am not the most up-to-date on upgrading UVerse
Ya but do you realize Cable is a shared Construct. Uverse Is Point to Point Bandwith thats them to you. Think of comcast and the cable companys as a bus Route.. it has stops... in a Loop.. At@t is more like a direct line one you have the connection + or - u should be close to what you get... With cable the Signal goes down and the Power amps get Going ....LOL
I understand that. However, that goes back to the whole cable slowing down thing. If cable is properly set up, it doesn't have any shared bandwidth problems, and it is far faster than DSL-based products. The other factor is that U-Verse is shared at the node, DSL is shared at the CO... ultimately it's all shared at some point, it's just a matter of where. And either system can be poorly implemented. So basically, the whole shared thing doesn't matter. Cable at 860mhz is bringing 4,484mbps of data into your house, not including upstream, while U-Verse is LUCKY to be provisioned at 32/5. Also, in terms of being shared, U-Verse shares bandwidth between TV and internet, where cable doesn't.
