I am tired of my Road Runner connection problems, and am looking at U-Verse.

I do not like changing things, but if it is better and at least the same price. I am looking at the Bundled services with Internet and TV.
Still look like about $130.00 per month if you have a couple TV sets, a couple cable boxes, and decent Internet speeds.

I am going to keep searching to see if anyone that flies online uses their Internet service.

I just found this info on U-Verse:

http://www.uverseusers.com/ind...to_the_premises_fttp (http://www.uverseusers.com/index.php?option=com_openwiki&Itemid=36&id=faq#will_i_get_fiber_to_the_node_fttn_or_fiber_ to_the_premises_fttp)

Current Drawbacks
As a new service, there are some drawbacks.

?Internet Speeds are not competitive. Very fast Internet with speeds of 15/10 Mbps and faster are available in many areas from many providers. AT&Tís Utopia, a public / private partnership has 15/15 Mbps for $39.95. Verizonís FIOS offers 20/20 Mbps in many markets for $64.99/month. Cable operators are offering 50/20 Mbps in some markets. U-verseís fastest is Internet Max at 10/1.5 Mbps. U-verse Internet also suffers from high latency with Ping times almost double that of other providers or DSL. A site with a ping time of 30 ms over a DSL line can have a ping time of 60 ms on U-verse Internet. The slow ping times can degrade some applications, particularly online games that are sensitive to ping times.

Looking to change TV and Internet with U-Verse, Voice kills the deal

I was very interested in U-Verse and then the packages I selected all required I subscribe to the damned voice option. :

Your promotional discounts have changed based on your new selections. You may update your selections as shown below or continue your order without the promotional discounts.
You must order AT&T U-verse Voice service to use this package. Please add this service to your order.

===
I am not happy with Road Runner ISP that comes with my Time Warner TV and Internet service.

I don't want the damned voice feature! This killed the deal...
why does ATT force people to use the damned voice option? it is in the packages.. in fact all the Cable Companies try to coerce people into using this service.
