What is My current internet connection service?

Do I have a fiber or copper system?

You have a bonded pair VDSL service which is Copper service that is know as U-verse Internet. Your 2 Copper lines are quite unbalanced but it looks like you are provisioned for 75/20 Mbps service.

VDSL indicates that you have 2 copper pairs of wiring to the local Video Ready Access Device (VRAD) box and from there it is Fiber to the Central Office (Co).

What speed of internet do you have? Fiber is 300mbps or higher.

The only way to tell absolutely is to visit your Gateway at http://192.168.1.254/ and click on the Broadband tab.  Post a screenshot of that page and we can tell you with 100% certainty.

@rrwcm as dave006 says, you have Fiber to the Node, or FTTN (i.e. fiber from the Central Office to the local VRAD near your home) and copper from the VRAD to your home.  Internet sales people will often call this "fiber" service, which is clearly not 100% true, nor is it 100% untrue.  I've heard Charter sales people use the same "fiber" terminology when the "last mile" (or fraction thereof) is over their coax system (which is also copper).  Most customers consider Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) to be fiber service.
