UVerse HSI vs Comcast Business class HSI?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am due to get Comcast Business class HSI (the 12/2 plan) in about 2 weeks here at the house. Comcast will be running cable from the neighbor's tap. I stopped by the ATT store just to ask about Uverse HSI and the sales agent said at the start of the year Uverse *should* be available where i live. We currently have 3.0 dsl. Some of the info he gave me directly contradicts what i had read on the web such as the data cap. When asked about the overage charges he said there were none and that if one goes over the 250 gb then ATT just throttles the connection down 6 meg. This is in direct contrast to Comcast HSI which has no data cap. Also he gave me a price of 59 bucks for Uverse phone and 18 meg HSI with 2 year agreement - he then said when a promo expires they at the store can keep giving promos. UVerse phone and HSI for $59 is a quite a deal especially if they will keep giving that price every 2 years. Is there any truth to any of this? Of the 2 which would you get? Obviously the att guy loves his uverse and said it was way better than his comcast that he had. I see mixed feedback for uverse around the web. Anyway thans for any advice.

I have read that Uverse does indeed charge overage. Something like an extra $10/100gb? Not too sure on that, but I am pretty sure there is an overage charge.

Yup, AT&T will definitely charge you for overages. Comcast is "unlimited" but I'm sure you'll get the little email/letter letting you know that you're abusing the service. I think it's like a 1TB soft limit, I thought I read that somewhere. I do have comcast business and there hasn't been any outages at all.
