Landline with DSL vs Landline with U-verse

I am not confident about U-verse internet and how it  is connected to my phone line. Big mistake to let AT&T sucker me into giving up DSL. Anyone else regret the switch?

Re: Landline with DSL vs Landline with U-verse

I had DSL prior to Uverse HSI.  My DSL connection had more issues than my Uverse.  I always had to reset my DSL modem in order to keep my speed i was paying for.  I have had Uverse since 2008 and it's been rock solid.  I also like the fact that Uverse is always on and you don't have to "log in" to it like DSL.

Re: Landline with DSL vs Landline with U-verse

I had a 768 Kbps ADSL line before upgrading to Uverse.  I've had POTS before and after.  The only problems I've had with POTS since the cutover to U-verse is a problem with the line not ringing (which lasted a couple days before they could fix it) and a 45 minute interruption when the guy installing the neighbor "didn't do anything" to my line, but fixed it immediately. Smiley Very Happy

 

The 768 kbps I had because it was cheap ($10/month) and it served as a lifeline for when my 3 Mbps Charter line would go out (which was not nearly as rare as my U-verse issues).
