AT&T U-verse Expansion

From the press release found in the link below:

 

Investing in Wireline IP Network Growth

 

AT&T plans to expand and enhance its wireline IP network to 57 million customer locations (consumer and small business) or 75 percent of all customer locations in its wireline service area by year-end 2015. This network expansion will consist of:

 

  • U-verse. AT&T plans to expand U-verse (TV, Internet, Voice over IP) by more than one-third or about 8.5 million additional customer locations, for a total potential U-verse market of 33 million customer locations¹. The expansion is expected to be essentially complete by year-end 2015.
  • U-verse IPDSLAM. The company plans to offer U-verse IPDSLAM service (high-speed IP Internet access and VoIP) to 24 million customer locations in its wireline service area by year-end 2013.
  • Speed Upgrades. The Project VIP plan includes an upgrade for U-verse to speeds of up to 75Mbps and for U-verse IPDSLAM to speeds of up to 45Mbps, with a path to deliver even higher speeds in the future.Fiber to Multi-Tenant Business Buildings. AT&T plans to proactively expand its fiber network to reach an additional one million business customer locations – 50 percent of the multi-tenant business buildings² in its wireline service area. AT&T expects the proactive fiber deployment to increase business revenue growth, accelerate provisioning and facilitate the installation of distributed antennas systems and small cell technology to help offload wireless network traffic.
    • In the 25 percent of AT&T's wireline customer locations where it's currently not economically feasible to build a competitive IP wireline network, the company said it will utilize its expanding 4G LTE wireless network -- as it becomes available -- to offer voice and high-speed IP Internet services. The company's 4G LTE network will cover 99 percent of all in-region customer locations. AT&T's 4G LTE network offers speeds competitive with, if not higher than, what is available on wired broadband networks today. And in many places, AT&T's 4G LTE service will be the first high speed IP broadband service available to many customers.
  • Fiber to Multi-Tenant Business Buildings. AT&T plans to proactively expand its fiber network to reach an additional one million business customer locations – 50 percent of the multi-tenant business buildings² in its wireline service area. AT&T expects the proactive fiber deployment to increase business revenue growth, accelerate provisioning and facilitate the installation of distributed antennas systems and small cell technology to help offload wireless network traffic.

Wow! I said WOW! Color me flabergasted!Smiley Surprised

 

I wonder if it was a case of agooglieosis (a fear of Google Fiber) that prompted this about-face from the previous dismal outlooks for wireline expansion/improvements.Smiley Wink

 

I guess I can start crossing my fingers again for better than 6Mbps.Smiley Indifferent

Re: AT&T U-verse Expansion

Had a tech out to the house today because the builder's sub-contractors cut my cable from the house to the pedastal, he said they are also working on adding more streams (told him I was disappointed that my 7 streams has been "fixed) and adding higher profiles. They are also working on better compression techiques.  I have 12Mbps internet and it's plenty fast enough for me, I would just like to have more streams.  Guess I'm lucky that I wasn't one of the first subscribers and they only had 2 streams.

Re: AT&T U-verse Expansion

How about faster upload speeds. 3 up speeds is way to slow. And for now ATT can’t figure out how to fix the Internet Bandwidth Meters. Lets hope it stay that way. Right now I still have unlimited Internet U-Verse 12/1/.5.

Something about this post reminds me of something I read earlier.  Maybe this:

Re: AT&T Expansion - F.Y.I.

You're right JMC.  And I apologize. But I had not seen the other post.  I placed mine over in the Uverse Lounge because I thought it was just something that might be of interest to some of the gang.  I came back later and it was gone.  But none of the usual info. from a mod. that it had been moved.....or where.  So I've been searching and finally found it here.  Yes it is basically the same material.  I gleaned mine from the business section of the newspaper.   I don't think it's the first time that I've accidently duplicated what someone else posted....over the last 5 years....and it'll probably happen again.  I was beginning to think I had imagined the whole thing.   Again....I apologize.

Hey Phil, that does seem odd.  I'll check with the Mods.

Thanks,

Re: AT&T Expansion - F.Y.I.

Your post looks like your paper's editorialization of the press release.  It was interesting to read both up next to each other and compare how it was edited.

Re: AT&T U-verse Expansion

I'd have to say this is a very important part of the above listed by TG:

 

In the 25 percent of AT&T's wireline customer locations where it's currently not economically feasible to build a competitive IP wireline network, the company said it will utilize its expanding 4G LTE wireless network -- as it becomes available -- to offer voice and high-speed IP Internet services. The company's 4G LTE network will cover 99 percent of all in-region customer locations. AT&T's 4G LTE network offers speeds competitive with, if not higher than, what is available on wired broadband networks today. And in many places, AT&T's 4G LTE service will be the first high speed IP broadband service available to many customers.

 

Currently Uverse reaches 30 million homes, if raised to 33 million listed above, it's only 3 million more homes, not 8.5 million homesSmiley Wink

Re: AT&T U-verse Expansion

ATT will not give out any information until an area is already lit up and working, so you can't get any info before that happens. Smiley Wink

DSL internet and Uverse internet are two different animals. If you're specifically asking for DSL when you call in then the answer you're getting makes sense, if there's already a VRAD in your neighborhood. I've never heard of them running out of ports for Uverse internet though.
