    "U-verse Universal"!!

    by woodrocks5125 Jul 18, 2014 8:17 AM woodrocks5125 Jul 18, 2014 10:32 PM Flag

    Well, I am not "the Fool's" fool or article either then. I think U-verse is way too expensive, and I am willing to go to Direct TV and hang onto copper wire so Google can bring on its version at $120/m or 80 to 90% lower cost, especially since it sounds only a year or two away. AT&T must think it still has a monopoly over all phone stocks and telecommunication as it did back in its hey day when it was "Ma Bell". Mind you 6.0 mps bandwidth residential is in and of itself really an inferior product offering and is certainly way too expensive. I have stock in Google anyway so perhaps I am better off changing my game plan to wait for U-verse and get into the Google fiberoptics program instead! Thanks for enlightening me on all this guys!

    Why doesn't AT&T get U-verse out to everyone on at least a 12 or greater MPS bandwidth? I just don't get it: How can U-verse be considered so "universal" - you know, "the latest thing, the greatest thing" when it doesn't even marketed anywhere it started now almost 10 years ago. I live in a capital city and all of the surrounding towns and villages here in New Jersey have it, but not Trenton. The same sort of situation exists in a lot of southern states, too, except Tennessee (Nashville). Something is tragically wrong with AT&T's advertising and promotions for U-verse. Another thing I object to is the cost of subscriptions. If they would only get off their duffs and get it out to more people, then the economies of scale for per household subscription would be vastly reduced while the technological and marketable developments it needs could be realized by the "universal U-verse" system as opposed to its falling prey to competitor cable viewing provided by the likes of Comcast, also a strong contender in both the Sunbelt South and middle Atlantic States. Please then AT&T get to work and make U-verse something truly "universal"!!
