How far from the VRAD?

How far from the VRAD?

Hi,
 
I am getting the system installed on Friday & was wondering if there is a way to determine how far I am from the VRAD &/or if fiber comes into my street.
 
I can see the boxes from the house but the way the streets are laid out its a good distance to actually get to them.
 
Thanks

Follow up:  Vizio is now connected by HDMI.  I did the both units on then pluged in the cable & it worked right away.

 

It all looks good so far & thanks to all who helped me out.

My receivers can take separate video & audio feeds for any output to the TV & speaker system.   Have HDMI running the picture to the TV & optical cable doing the sound system.  Cuts down on a bunch of heavy wire.

Re: How far from the VRAD?

The answer to this question is technically 3500 ft. from the vrad. That is what the technical specs call for on the uverse limits, however that doesn't mean that there aren't exceptions in certain cases....

Re: How far from the VRAD?

Just exactly what is a VRAD? I did a search and came up with a stock quote of  a company. I assume that if you aren't within a certain distance of a VRAD your service will not be satisfactory. How can I tell how far away it is from my house?

The maximum distance you can be from a VRAD is 3500 feet to get service.  The tech would be able to tell you when he/she comes to your home.  The closer you are to the vrad the more likely you will be able to get the higher profile which would enable you to get 2hd streams and 2sd streams.  Instead of 1hd stream and 3 sd streams.

Thanks folks, I know right where it is in my neighborhood. The distance will be really close.

Re: How far from the VRAD?

Again, thanks. I measured the distance and it is seven-tenths of a mile. This would be roughly 3700 feet. Since I would be on the fringe, if available at all, I will wait to see if AT&T can overcome this limitation with technology. As it stands now I have good reception with cable and my DSL is the best.

Re: How far from the VRAD?

If it is not available just keep calling to check.  Also, ATT will announce here in the forum when it is launched in that area.

I'm the oddball that is exactly 3,720 feet from the VRAD and still have service. It's the 19/2 profile for 1 HD / 3 SD, and 12Mbs internet. My actual internet speed varies from 7-10.5Mbs.
