VDSL2 pair bonding

I am a current uVerse customer in Crystal Lake, IL. I am moving to xxxx Lake St, Burlington, WI 53105 and the website says I have Power 45 mbps available. Would you be able to confirm that this location will be able to have VDSL2 pair bonding?

Thank you!

Unless you are on the new 17a profile, all Power customers are on bonded pair

I have read that even though the website offers the option for Power internet, until a tech runs a test for the specific address, Power may not be available.  An article on DSL Reports suggest asking the question.  This is the article http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Examining-ATTs-45-Mbps-UVerse-Tier-And-If-You-Can-Get-It-126226 and the important part of the article is "Also, at the present the faster option is not available to ADSL2+ or xPON customers since pair bonding must use VDSL2. There are also rather strict loop length limitations from the neighborhood VRAD to get these new speeds. Users who find that they qualify on the website and have a tech come out to install it may find themselves disappointed as well."

 

So is there a way to determine if Power internet is available at my new house?

 

Thank you!!

Now they let GPON customers get the Power tier. The website says that I can get Power, but my neighbor can only get Max Turbo, so you are in luck. Adding to what My Thoughts said, the only reason you shouldn't be able to get Power is if your line has bridge taps, load coils, or there isn't a second free pair. The first two can be fixed, the last one means you need to wait for somebody to cancel, or get Max Turbo
