There's nothing wrong with getting "only" 25/5 (or thereabouts, presuming for now one actually does get that). The percentage of customers who can actually use anything faster and notice the difference is low. So it's not a problem for U-Verse that it hasn't "kept up" with cable as speeds go. Keeping up with cable prices, though, doesn't seem to bother them.
