[LATimes] AT&T announces 21 potential markets for ultra-fast Internet service - Page 6

post #51 of 53
People seem to think its easy for AT&T to just start building BBOXs in your cities, take SF for example many residents were tired of Dish Network and Comcast but when we tried to roll out U-verse a few years back we got opposition from neighborhood activist about building VRADs in addition to the already existing BBOX that provides POTS to customers. People want better choices for tv and internet but refuse for new infrastructure to be built. We have the capability to bring u-verse to homes that currently don't have the IPTV service, but sometimes the city and its people step in and prevent us from doing so.

I also see a lot of complaints about U-verse/IPDSL having bad service in areas, how about letting us run new cat 5 in your home, or having your property manager update the wiring inside your 50 year old apartment complex, and how about hiring a better company to wire up your new house with cat 5 because you don't want us to do it for you.

That blows, just checked and I can get a whopping 24Mbps from AT&T for $55(18 for $45) while Charter is 30Mpbs for $30(soon to be 60 for $30!). AT&T is probably just doing this to say they have the most Gigabit networks when in reality they serve hardly anyone at those speeds.
