I have been a uVerse customer for threeyears. I am on the 19M profile with a max sync rate of about 22-23M, due to the distance to the VRAD. At one point I was told that they were only using pair bonding for people who couldnt get uverse at all without it. I'm wondering if I can request pair bonding now to improve my sync rate and move to a higher profile.
i don't have any problems with my existing TV or 10Mb Internet, but I would like more than 2 HD streams at once.
Any suggestions on how i should proceed with this?

This reply brings up an interesting point, if I'm reading it correctly (I am new to DSL) in that if the line goes below the profile you are OOS, I assume this is because your SNMargin becomes too low?
However, If I was in the OP's postion I wouldn't even have this service if all I could get was 2HD streams, I'm not overly thrilled about the options with a 24Meg profile so I'm happy that I quilified for a 32 since if I knew that only having 3HD streams when I have 3 HD TVs was a possibility I may not have even signed up.
As a result, the extra risk of a line going out because I have two would be worth it for me. As it is if my one line goes out I'm OOS, so the extra probability of a line failure is obviously higher it should still be low. For me that risk would be worth it, but as I said I wouldn't purchase this service if I could only get a 19M profile.

Without knowing specific details one has to take a generally position.
If on an dsl line with a maximum internet speed of 3M, the option of getting uverse 2 HD/2SD with 12M is appealing on a 19M profile (due to distance the best they could get)
OP in an MDU that does not allow dish or direct tv, or a single family with neighbors trees blocking signal.
Possible OP only choice is ATTor OP prefers ATT over other options (TW or CC)
If not serviced by another provider and only other option maybe 4G with low caps (no tv) can understand OP position, but if able to be on 32M profile with better internet and tv options plus ability to choose among several providers your statements of not being satisfied with less than you have is also understandable but does not consider the OP choices.

Single Family house. STB's are all connected with Cat 5.
If I understand what you you are saying, with a bonded pair I run the risk of no service if either one of the lines has an issue. RIght now my line has a rock solid 22-23MB max user rate. I check it regularly, and I have never seen it less than this. Knock on wood, I have never really had any outages during the time I have had uVerse.
Refresh my memory - with a 25MB profile, how many HD streams would I get? I currently have the 10MB Internet package.
If I decided I want to investigate this further, who would I contact about this?

If your VRAD has a K-card, then swapping to that(assuming you aren't already on one) would boost your max significantly so that if you did move to bonded 25/2 it could run on one pair if necessary.
