AT&T DSL I have the 6/512 plan they offer, and am quite happy with it. Perhaps a touch pricey if you compare raw speeds and price to that of my one other option, Comcast. But, and it's a big but, Comcast was crap here. When I left them, they had the 6/2 plan with speedboost, or whatever it was called. Anytime it stormed, they went down. They would go for months, with apparently an overloaded node, or something, and speeds were horrendous about 12 hours a day. There always seemed to be an "issue" with Comcast. I had them for 10 years or so. in 1.5 years with DSL, never had to call once. It's been down only one time, just a couple of hours, when there was a major fiber cut somewhere. It's steady as a rock, it's never down. And, in fact, they just upgraded the CO box at the end of the street over the past 1.5 years, which first allowed DSL to come to our neighborhood. So, I'm not sure what AT&T is considering at this point. But for now, even though I don't have 'blazing speeds'. I have a very good internet service.
I have to agree, i had SBC/ATT DSL for about 10-11 years (about 5-6 different locations) it's been ROCK solid with less than a couple times of being down down. Uveres (and comcast cable) SUCKS in reliability next to DSL. plus you are stuck with 2 or 3 (P.O.S) gateways from ATT with no 3rd party option. i have had Uverse in 3 locations (reliability SUCKED/'s) and Comcast is just plain SHIIIIT anywhere i had them (3 different locations also). the latest fad is not always the best regardless the way you make it out to be!!!!!
