Re: Considering upgrading to U-Verse from DSL

So it is necessary for a tech to do the installation?

I was under the impression that I could do it myself. I set up my DSL router and connection as well as my STB's for Charter without a tech and they all work fine.

Also, did I understand you correctly in that I'd have to rewire my house and that U-verse could not use my existing phone wiring? That's kind of a PITA...

Uverse only allows a self install for internet only, so if you switch to the uverse for internet only you could do it yourself but tv always requires an install visit plus you get education on how it works

Our tv service requires all of the coax to be tested and all the coax has to have our fittings on it as well as our splitter so thats another reason for full tech installs for video
