I got this deal in December before my contract was up. All I told the rep was that I was gonna drop ATT if they're gonna start charging me $50 for 12MB when I can get 20MB for $30 from Comcast for 6 months. Then she transferred me to retention and the retention lady said she could give me 18MB for $27 for a year.
This is a good deal IF..... IF you've already paid the $100 fee for the 2wire modem from the previous contract.
These speeds and prices really pi$$ me off (50 plus down, seriously?).
Living in the country has tons of advantages but one disadvantage is internet access.
I pay $40/mo for sometimes 4megs down, usually 1-2 megs down, via wireless.
My choice is that, or dial up, and I dont have a landline.

It is actually ridiculously easy to put it into a bridge mode. And I have a N router behind it, works fine.
No, the uVerse Gateways are VDSL and not DSL, so they cannot ever be put into a true bridge mode. Yes, you can hang a second router off of the Gateway in DMZ Plus mode, but port forwarding is not going to work. If you need port forwarding, and many people do, then it's an incredible pain in the ass to get it working correctly.
You can check in ur att account, but I'm not sure if there's a problem with my account or it happened to everyone. It's saying it's not available to display and I never get warming about overage.
Officially? It's 250GB per month. I'm not sure if they're sending out nastygram's yet, and maybe only to those who consistently break that barrier, but I've yet to get one and I'm a pretty heavy downloader/uploader.

Huh? I used a wireless router fine with the Uverse Gateway. I just disabled all the wireless capabilities on the gateway (making it just a modem) and connected it to my wireless router which had much better WIFI signals.
Again, for simple functions this will work, but it's far from ideal because you WILL be double NAT'd. If you need to enable port forwarding for specific applications and/or devices, then having a double NAT will make that impossible, and the ONLY way to make it work with uVerse is to turn your own router into a wireless access point, or buy one of those instead of a router to begin with.
Again, I was very specific as to whom this was directed at, and that would be people who need to be able to make port forwarding work in order for specific applications, games, or hardware to function correctly/fully.
im on DSL right now, i like how i can change my IP address by power cycling the modem. It comes in handy when downloading from rapidshare and other sites like that. can u change IP addresses on Uverse?
I have had Uverse since 2009 and can change my IP address. That was one of the features that sold me on it.
I would be interested in this deal but I don't have any contracts with Uverse...my price has remained the same for years.
Well the first two months that I had uverse internet I could view 1080p videos on youtube fine with no problems, and as time progressed, it just stopped working and I could only view 360p, not sure if more people were getting uverse that was making it slower or what was happening but many people had the same issue as me.
I never do any personal business with AT&T, whether it's for UVERSE or mobile service.
I deal with their business side circuit provisioning at my job. They can install a T1 incredibly fast, but they never can get the bill right (billing $15,000/month instead of $160.00 for example).
Instead of just billing what the quote or contract says that you sign, they have all these weird codes that are required on the order because of their antiquated billing systems.
The process to get it corrected makes you want to eat a gun. You have to send in a spreadsheet that contains countless fields that need to be filled in. The spreadsheet actually has two separate tabs explaining what the fields are.
They have a handful of different billing systems, and as I've said, all are antiquated. Their internal departments don't work together to resolve customer complaints so you end up having their collections department demanding money while the billing department is still working to correct erroneous charges.
Oh - and some of the people I work with belong to the union so they are not in a hurry to do any work except deny claims in order to make sure their queues are empty.
The only real benefit is that, on a rare occasion, the apathy and incompetence leads to under-billing or duplicate credits.
