I have had AT&T DSL for years. Yes it is very stable. I can only think of one service outage since install.

On the other hand the best my street can get is the 3Mbps package. And actual down TX for me is 1.8Mbps. I downloaded Premonition in HD from D* VOD yesterday. The film is 1:36. The download took 9 Hours 8 Minutes. Not what I'd call "On Demand".

Just drop the TV after the 30 day free trial and they let you keep the internet and VOIP. Here you can get 10 Mbps for 55 dollars a month.

That's what I did, albeit unintentionally. Now I have 10mbps/1.5mbps internet and unlimited long distance and all the u-verse phone bells and whistles for $75/month.

Switching to u-verse from DTV is a step backwards in picture quality and viewing options. Directv is the shiznit...hands down.:grin:

That's the same as my street got the 3Mbps package went round and round with AT&T about it.I had to reset my modem alot when I did I got 2.5 Mbps.But it would gradually go back down to 1.8Mbps I finally decided that after 3 months I was tired of that crap I felt I wasn't getting what I was paying for.So I went to the 1.5 Mbps package.Now running 1.3 Mbps and feel I'm getting my monies worth.;)

I also don't do VOD anymore I did try it with both speeds and both took forever.My solution is to subscribe to a more channels package.I also believe that even though AT&T let me subscribe to the 3 Mbps package my line can't handle it that's why the constant reduction in speed and modem resets.;)
