It's ATT, so it will be 45 down, and 768k up...maybe even as high as 1Mbit.

1Mbps up would choke on the ack packets of even a 20Mbps down connection

OK, so they will go ahead and throttle it down to 512k... It's Ma Hell bro, they care very little about customer satisfaction.

A lot of companies offer 20/1 or 24/1 and they do not choke.

Since they currently offer 24/3 service, why would they upgrade to 45/1 or 45/768? The profile being tested is 45/5 on a single pair. The higher tier service offerings will show up when they are ready to do pair bonding with the new NVG589 gateway later this year.

It would be a minimum of 3Mbps up, since that's what they have on the 24Mbps line. I definitely hope it will be 5 or more, but I am doubtful it will be over 5.

AT&T competes with Time Warner and Comcast in most of their markets...

Unless the upload speed is faster than 5 Mbps, this is an utterly useless 'upgrade.'

Time Warner offers 50/5 Mbps in their markets and Comcast even faster than this; so if this pathetic speed tier is 45/5 or 45/3 Mbps there is zero point in going with capped AT&T over uncapped Time Warner.

This speed tier will no doubt cost a fortune. They'll probably put it at $99.

AT&T's capped 24/3 Mbps speed tier is $75 a month - the same price that Time Warner's uncapped 50/5 Mbps speed tier is right now.

The only reason AT&T has any subscribers at all is just plain ignorance. They offer a slower service with bandwidth caps for higher prices than the competition.

I don't see how increasing speeds when uninformed people are the only ones subscribing is going to help. The kind of people who care about speeds, I.E. informed people, will be sticking with the competition.

I doubt that, I see as least one post a week or so and if they could leave cable they would. Some would leave on price, some (link below) would be just direct itself. Sometimes picking and choosing your battles does help.

no, they don't. I have a 100mbps connection, and with a full 12.5MB/s download going, my upload is only around 15KB/s.

$75 is just TWC's "new customer" promo price; after a year it goes up to $95/mo.

Full deployment as of 7/22/13. All new bonded services or conversions will be 589 from 7/22 forward. Existing repairs will continue to use standard unit until stock is depleted.

Seriously? I have a 24 MB package, my upstream hits about 50-60KB/s at most when filling up the down.

Hmm.. This is good info. I am moving to Nashville soon, and my place has Uverse available. Guys in ATT Direct told me the max I can provision at my address is 58/8 on bonded pair.

I just ordered comcast 50/10 instead

Good luck with your order and cross your anatomy that you never have to call them.
