Final Update -- Trying ATT UVerse on for size...

boxfiddler Moderator
Is anyone using it?

I'm thinking of dumping Charter in favor of UVerse. Thoughts, opinions, advice will be highly appreciated, and thumbed.

Any known issues with Linux?

Thanks!

HAL? Better know who you are if you answer this!

With the thunderstorm-related glitchyness: I wonder if a radio frequency suppressor is in order. That signal has only 5000 feet max to travel through copper, so that sounds kind of weird to me.

Buffering is dead on. It's waiting for the next packets that went missing.

Glad to hear that everything is is otherwise hunky dory. :)

It's been a couple of months now using ATT U-Verse.

Overall, an excellent experience to date.
6M Internet is faster that 10M with Charter was. U-Verse router and XP Firewall don't get along. Playing with ZoneAlarm Free next. Tech says it should be no problem. Security scan at www.grc.com without software firewall is totally stealth. Makes me happy, port 113 registered closed but visible with Charter.

TV - few to no problems. Box takes a long time to reboot if it needs resetting or gets unplugged. Buttons on the remote very small, hubby is constantly screwing something up because of big fingers. Sh*tload of channels, including music. Reception excellent overall, very good during storms.

Only drawback: Yahoo mail. Keeping my $5.00/month Earthlink boxes. Hate yahoo mail.

Savings: approximately $25.00/month.

I think ATT has most of the kinks worked out. One of my better decisions. B-)

Try Online Armor for a firewall, it's pretty decent. M. Kassner uses it.

So you'll have to put up with nothing more than this response.

After long and difficult Deliberations with the HAL 9000 Unit I have it on good authority that it knows nothing about ISP's in the States. You are batter off asking people with local knowledge as all the research that HAL has managed to carry out only goes to show that too many Americans are happy to settle for way too little costing way too much.

Hal is insisting that you have SWMBO because he needs a rest from all the Destructions that are being ordered. ]:)
