I am scheduled for an install of UVerse TV/Internet/Phone service and it is scheduled for 4-6 hours. The only way this would be possible is if they have to re-run wiring in my house. My house is currently wired with regualr coax cable for TV/Internet and regular phone wiring. Are they going to have to run everything with fiber-optic cable or what? Just want to know what to expect.

It works with coax, but it will work better with new cat 5 wiring. Cat 5 can handle more info and at better quality because it is fiber optic. I had them rewire my house with cat 5 and it works great.
Cat 5 is not fiber optic, it's copper.
A good installation of coax will perform as well as a good installation of cat5. Where people run in to trouble with coax is if the wiring has deteriorated or if there are old connectors in place somewhere along the cable path. If the cable is in good shape and the connectors have been replaced, there should be no difference.
