u-verse is pretty good until you need some kind of service, then it's a pain in the arse, but, I think all the companies are like that now

I 100% agree with this. I've been sitting here for 4 hrs waiting on this ahole to get here to fix my shite. This is the 3 rd time out cable/Internet has gone out on us in the last 2 weeks.
I've been the biggest AT&T backer until now. When their shite is working its the tits

How fast is 1.5? Thats the fastest speed that available in my area. Would i just be better off using charter?

Just got U-verse about 3 weeks ago. It's not nearly as fast as the sales rep said it would be. It works fine but the customer service has been a shite show from day one when no one showed up for the installation. Three days later when the guy finally came he drilled one hole, installed one extra wire and that was that. The whole thing took maybe 30 minutes after being stuck at home waiting all weekend.

re: uverse vs charter


We re about to get Uverse. We are going to save about 100 dollars a month instead of Cox. I just hope it works out well.

Their sales reps are a bit sketchy. We had some young dude with a beard and he had a buddy who asked if I'd ever been to New Orleans. After I told him "about a thousand times", he proceeded to show me a video on his phone of one of the street performers by the River and Jax. I wondered why on earth he thought I would be impressed. We then talked about Atlanta. He asked me if that was in Georgia. The main guy was cool and this guy must have been about 19-20 and not very intelligent and naïve. They also smelled like cigarettes which I didn't think was very impressive. Anyhow, we wanted U Verse and these two came out and we set up an apt date. First guy was helpful...his sidekick was weird, bottom line. Can anyone get a job as a Uverse sales rep, because in my off time, I wouldn't mind smoking it up and showing up to peoples' homes and telling them they can save money.

On a positive note, the installation fee was waved and we get a $50 pre-paid Visa. We have the Cox bundle (of course, we do not save any $$$ because we bundled long ago and before it was a "deal".) U Verse is giving us -- and I am sure most of you have the same deal -- a package with all movie channels and lots of others. Our internet service is supposed to be faster and we get three boxes with dvr instead of Cox only allowing us two. We also get to keep our same home number for our alarm. I admit, Cox has taken a big shite on us and we have let them (added many premiums however) and now we will save 110 a month we UVerse. I say ok.

Just got rid of UVerse in Ponchy and went back to Charter. UVerse reliability and customer service were horrible.
