Deal Details

I had the 3mbps dsl from at&t and paying $15 a month promotional rate for 1 yr.
My 1 yr period just expired and I called.

I didn't even mention cancellation when the rep offered me 12mpbs u-verse for $25 a month with free self-install + Free after rebate wireless router and modem. The rebate is a $100 visa gift card.

I had called 1-800-288-2020.

12mbps u-verse - $25 a month
modem + wireless router - Free after $100 visa gift card
Self install kit - free, shipped via UPS
1 year contract (can be canceled within first 30 days)

NOTE: Others have mentioned that you'll get this price only if you have another AT&T service - e.g. land line, tv or cell phone. For everyone else, the cost will be $35 a month for 1 year.

I have this same deal, which I got by signing a one-year contract and also because I have AT&T wireless service. They told me it was a "special deal" for those with AT&T wireless.

When I got the free modem/router, I got sent a regular Motorola modem but I also got a new Linksys E1000 router. Works out really well. Although I think I'm lucky enough to live within a few thousand feet of a CO.

Are people still using landlines !!

Traditional Land Lines !!


Wow !! I mean wow...
Yes, people are. With real, analog, mechanical phones. NO power cord on the phone, just the phone wire itself. Free power from the phone wire when a call is received causes a metal bar inside the phone to physically jiggle so its end alternately bangs (yes, actually bangs!) two dome-shaped pieces of metal. This is called "ringing", and the device with the bar and domes is called a "bell". Mine has not dropped a call since, umm, when did I plug it into the wall jack? Oh, yeah, it was in December 1989 when I bought the house. Wow, indeed. Who could imagine that kind of reliability from phone equipment in 2011? I mean wow...

i think your speed depends largely on how far you are from the main service station...mine is less than 2 miles from me and i was getting 5Mpbs on a 6Mpbs DSL service. it seems for me (probably varies per person and location) they seem to give me 1Mpbs less than my max...when i had the 3Mpbs service, i was getting 2Mpbs consistantly...i don't expect to get 11Mpbs on my new 12Mpbs service, but even if i get somewhere in the range of 8Mpbs I will be happy since i am getting 5 now, and i will be paying $15 less per month now
This is what gets me. I've been a Uverse customer since they went Beta and am more or less satisfied with the service (I fear having to call them however). It seems to me that if they can offer me a faster service if I pay them more, they could offer me the speed they quote it at. If you can always go up in speed if you pay more, then the fact that you aren't getting the speed you pay for isn't a problem based on distance, it's a problem based on their speed quotation policy. Why doesn't AT&T just quote you a speed, then cap your router/modem at that speed and be done with it. It's a marketing ploy that we are letting them get away with.

Quote from greenmeansgoooo View Post :
actually there is 'overhead' with DSL, so you will never get 100% of the speed. when i had the old school DSL I was getting 70-80% of my max speed.

now with cable, you not only get your max speed, but also it can go well above.

i seriously doubt that i will ever go back to DSL.

the landline is on its way out too as its days are numbered. Basic landline with choice basic package (unlimited local, caller id, call waiting [no call waiting CID]) and no long distance is cheaper then just having unlimited local calling and CID. although with the $10+ in taxes its almost cheaper to get a $40/mo unlimited cell phone! just a few dollars more and the landline goes.

Anyway DSL sucks too
U-Verse is fiber to the node, not DSL. Where I live it goes to about a block and a half away via fiber optic cable, then to my house via coaxial cable (like the UHF/VHF cable). DSL, as I understand it, uses high frequencies over standard telephone lines (which is why it comes with a filter so you can use your phone and data on the same line). DSL does not equal U-Verse.

As for the service, I had to work with CS for weeks before I was happy. That was years ago. Now I only have to call them when my bill goes up so I may take advantage of whatever promotion is current or downgrade to a cheaper service. When I first started I got the best TV package with the best internet package for $70 a month. Right now I have something like the 12mbs for $35 a month. When I had it, the TV box took too long to change channels or update. If my cat ever accidentally unplugged it, it would take almost five minutes to turn back on. Other than that, it was awesome. There are a few features that were different than standard cable, but I hear that Comcast is killing it now with their ipad apps and such.

Does it mean I can use my existing cable equipment?

are you sure you had to sign up for one year? if you go through their website, all the options for U-verse internet show no contract...but that is for internet only, i don't know if you have any other services with AT&T. i only have dryloop dsl, so this is replacing the DSL and ordered it online...also had a chat window open for a service rep and they said they would waive my $100 modem fee once i gave them my order info so i did that also.
I think every area has different promotions

In my case they said modem is $100 but if I upgrade from 6mbs to 12 mbs then modem is free but I need to sign up for 1 year

I heard different stories all over Houston so I am not surprised

Except in my neighborhood where U-Verse is DSL, on copper, and tops out at 12mbps.

the reason they upgraded you is so that they could add a new promo on at the same time for the free modem and discounted rate.

It's better than 150GB cap on the DSL.

This offer is honored at any corporate store as well, as long as you're "green" (eligible for U-verse)

Signed-

AT&T Rep
Max promo in Retail stores is $34.95. The $24.95 is if you have a cell phone or Uverse voice.

called the 800 number in OP and after went through the whole automated system, finally got hold of a rep to tell me that that offer is only for customers with other ATT services. Mine will be $34.99/m with an activation fee. I hang up a.s.a.p
