I hope they push those upgrades they are planning faster since they're already falling really behind :/. Here's the Netindex speedtest results in our state. $19.99 for 16/2(25/4 boosts) or $25.95 for 3/1 :/?

Not sure where your price/number came from but 19.95 (Basic) will only get you 3Mbps from Comcast, and that's only for 6 months. 29.95 will get you 20Mbps (Performance), again only for 6 months.
Performance Internet offer ends 1/31/13 and is limited to new residential customers. Not available in all areas. Limited to Performance Internet service to a single outlet. After first 6 months, monthly service charge goes to $44.99 for months 7-12. After 12 months, or if any service is cancelled or downgraded, regular charges apply. Comcast's current monthly service charge for Performance Internet ranges from $42.95 to $62.95, depending on area and other Comcast services (if any) received. PowerBoost provides bursts of download and upload speeds for the first 10 MB and 5 MB of a file, respectively. Actual speeds vary and are not guaranteed.
Cox for $19.95 will get you 3Mbps, $29.95 for 12Mbps, $64.99 for 25Mbps

And again, who cares. Only person that seems to care is you. So if you want Comcast, you are welcome to have them as your provider, and I am sure that there is a lot you can contribute in their forums regarding their service.
As for changes, ATT has some Ace's up their sleeve, that within the last two quarters of this year, and starting next year, you will see increased Internet speeds.
Matter of fact, Trendnet just announced a 1.8gbps Wireless Access Point at CES this week. That means that due to the 5 year cycle, you are going to start seeing more 2gb Networking products out in the mainstream for consumers, along with more equipment providers start introducing more higher throughput equipment for Internal LAN use, along with allowing better WAN to LAN throughput, so that means that providers are seeing not only what the economy holds out for them, but also what has been in the lab, is finally getting out to the consumers.
Trendnet's 450meg Access Point now is out for half of what it originally cost a year ago, so that tells you right there, that the equipment is getting out to the consumers, so that they are ready when the ISP's open up even more. But in turn, D.C. is the final say in what is the cause & effect to when it comes to U.S. providers giving more or less to their customers.

Can you... uh.. please stop twisting my words around? Why are you acting like I'm trying to get people to join Comcast? I don't, I just want to try to get things changed. I just came here to say that they need to work a little faster and to look for information about upgrades....
To be honest, most of the "Awarded" people on these forums don't even deserve it. Whenever I go through these forums I see the same people "Awarded" people posting rude comments to people asking for help with how to find something. Only people who deserve it would be Somejoe, Texasguy, RCSMG, JefferMC, etc. They seem to be handing out the award like free candy. If you wanted to change my whole point of this thread you should of just discussed this with me in PM. I have no intention to say that U-verse was a horrible fail. It has so much potential that I would like to make AT&T begin to use (Which was the point).
Well, I guess this thread went down the gutter. Have a nice night.

Stop being so rude to people who think UVerse isn't perfect. Guess what, they aren't. But then again, no service is. I agree AT&T needs to keep on their toes because other providers are starting to pass them by with their offerings. The only counter point I was trying to make is that the prices he quoted in his original message are not accurate everywhere as I went shopping and couldn't find those $19.95 deals anywhere for those speeds.

Can't you just let this thread die? You ruined it anyway. You may want to use your eyes for what they're meant for, reading.
I said since you cannot read
"And if you think I'm lying, you're crazy .
Even though the threads are old, these pop up as offers often."
You said you didn't care about what I had to say so why are you constantly posting in this thread? You're ridiculous. You derailed my thread so much, I just want answers. You keep trying to move towards my "Comcast fanboiness" which isn't true. Just leave or something please? I just want this thread to die and you keep making it turn into a piece of dirt.

The deal is true :/. We have had the Performance deal for a couple months now. It was a 1 year contract for $19.99 first year then $34.99 2nd then reg price. I'm getting upset since you keep trying to tell me that I'm wrong and stating that I'm trying to do something I'm not. We had the pyshical ad for both of the offers in our hands with the fine print.

Oh, I know that there are discounts if you get them to give you them. Just trying to say that U-verse is charging more for lower tiers on internet only regardless of if you're on a promo or not. What I am hoping for is a soon U-verse upgrade to lower the price per Mbps with not just At&t but surrounding companies. If they do as they say then competition will rise and prices will fall while the internet in the US will begin to grow. Cable prices began to rise again and At&t did nothing to stop it as they rose their prices too. I wish that EU broadband prices one day come to the US.
