Can't do it.

It's technical. The bandwidth meters can't differentiate between internet and IPTV traffic. This is why the meter is being applied to IPDSL, but none of the Uverse types that carry video.

Wrong about IPDSL. It is also not being applied to IPDSL customers, which is probably the majority of 'U-verse' customers, myself included.

Your statement is not correct.

It can be, they just haven't figure out how to do it yet. Typical for the company of idiots like the AT&T wireline side.

When will they realize that they need to run GPON fiber? And offer unlimited 1gbps connections? They would wipe cable out by offering what Google offers... 1gbps for $70...

IPTV is IPv4 Multicast and Internet is Unicast with the exception of RFC 1918. Very Easy to separate with any old stateless ACL

It *should* be easy to do. Remember who we're dealing with here.
