Uverse internet vs. Road Runner

Does anyone know how uverse's internet compares to time warner cable's roadrunner? I'm thinking of switching but not if it's not worth it.

 

 

Thanks!!

I had Time Warner/Oceanic in Hawaii.  I have found that my U-Verse internet serverice is FAR more consistant.  Not only is my upload speed better, but my download speeds are much more stable...no more slow periods when everyone in the neighborhood was on.

My wife just bought a laptop that has Vista Business vs. and it works great.  I even set it up to connect to our printer wirelessly.  I think you need to end that chat and connect to a different csr.

I too am on Vista Home Premium with no problems at all.  No problems printing wirelessly either.  Connecting to the network over wireless was very simple...

Can't have and don't support are two different things.  Though I don't know their policies on supporting particular operatings systems (as in tech support and other help), I can tell you that as long as it has a TCP/IP stack it will work with U-verse.

Despite all of the great features, benifits, and customer service we get from U-verse, I have noticed that if your computers aren't running Windows XP, you are out of luck when it comes to technical support.  You should have seen the installers face when they came to my house.  One laptop ran Visa and the other MacOS...poor guy scratched his head and actually had me SHOW HIM how to establish the wireless connections. 

 

I'm really surprised they don't train their folks a little better.  Its not like Mac and Vista are low volume OS's like LINUX.

Re: Uverse internet vs. Road Runner

I don't see why they have to install the network adapters, the computers should detect the wireless network and all they would have to do is type in the password.  Or am I missing something?  I had a laptop that had a wireless network adapter and it worked fine.  But the installer removed it and replaced it with the 2wire adapter.

They didn't seem to have a problem installing on my Vista machine.

My wife just got a laptop that has Vista Business Edition.  It detected the network and I put in the password and away she went.  When I set it up to be able to print, the Vista software detected my network.  I clicked on it and I saw the printer, I selected it and it did a test print.  It has been working great.  So I don't see why the techs would have a problem.  If I can and have brought other wireless laptops into my home and connected to my 2wire network, I don't see why the techs have to change the adapters that are in the laptops of the Uverse subscribers.

Likewise.  Both of our notebooks....one XP and one Vista....detected the connection and all we had to do was type in the security key.  Our desktop runs XP and is connected via ethernet cable.
