WTH?

So... are we going to discuss this, or do you just want to give us a URL and we stare at each other for a long time?

C'mon, man, at least ask some questions.

YES.

It's crap! Well when I had it it was.. I think it's a hit or miss thing because I have some friends who like it but they aren't as download/gaming hog like I am. Go Comcast if you want the fastest connection. Currently getting 14-16 mb down and 3-4.5 up.. This is before Docsis 3.0 with a Motorola SB6120 modem.

How much bandwith do I use? 4 laptops, 1 desktop, Xbox 360, Ps3, Netflix on 3 devices.. All while constantly running bittorent with items reaching 1mb download..

Wait a moment. You use ALL OF THOSE constantly AND simultaneously? I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. You might run two or three, but... all of those? Really?

i use to play CS and Day of Defeat a few years back with ATT dsl. I was skeptical because i always had cable before, but really there wasnt much difference. Granted, the amount of servers with the desired ping was little less but i had no significant problems.

3 adults and 5 kids in the house... It's not an exaggeration. Maybe 1 or 2 devices are not on but we definitely use the bandwidth.

You need to use one of those filters on your phones, should have came with your modem.

I have At&t DSL, its not fastest internet out there, but its cheap and stable. I never had any outages since ive had it. If your the only person using a lot of bandwidth then dsl will be fine, but if other people in your home use a lot of bandwidth or watch videos then your games will lag.

Ok, so no one caught this...?

3 adults? (threesome?)
5 kids? (... and counting?)

1.5Mbps didn't cut it for Halo's big team. 3Mbps was ok, but wouldn't recommend them. The service sucked. I haven't played online since switching to cable.

Always had Comcast, just got Uverse and cant believe it took me this long to switch over, it is AMAZING.

Since seeing the difference, my parents and uncle have both switched over to Uverse. Used to have issues with XBOX LIVE using the wireless adapter, now it is as clean as if it was a wired connection.

Also like the fact that their modem has a built in wireless router, much faster than my NetGear/Linxus routers.

Also love the HD service on Uverse TV.

Can I just get the internet with that or do I need the tv package?

i have u verse and it is faster than the comcast service i had. i had the standard service from comcast and i have the fastest uverse they could give me. 12 i think. uverse is cheaper than cc was with tv and dvr. also can record 2 hd shows at one time. the speed for both depend on your locatiion and for comcast if your cable connections are old it will be slower.
