To little to late IMHO. The should have never stalled their rollout. i am literally three blocks to far away and it makes zero sense why they stopped where they if you understood my neighborhood. zero. They still don't have video service in my area, and I just dumped them for charter Internet since AT&T speed was 6 and charter is around 30 for less money a month. I'm still debating on video for the Lakers games, I'd prefer twc get cox and charter streaming access so I didn't have to get video.
IPTV which is what U-Verse and Verizon Fios is still fairly new and just started becoming available in residential places about 5 years ago.
Like any consumer tech service a provider right off the bat can't and won't reach their full potential.Simply not happening. Which is why AT&T plans to improve their infrastructure and services.
You are in the LA or SoCal area which Verizon dominates and owns most of the ILEC up there. Which is another reason why availability for U-Verse services & performance may vary in different parts.
