AT&T DSL U-Verse vs. Verizon FiOS

AT&T U-Verse is a revolutionary new concept in entertainment services in which digital television, high speed Internet and digital voice service is delivered to the home via fiber optics and is now rivaling Verizon FiOS Internet Service.  Internet speeds ranging from 10 to 100 times faster than dial-up guarantee that AT&T U-Verse has solutions for both home and office. AT&T U-Verse offers a complete Internet Protocol-based video service and next-generation digital voice technology.

Maximum Efficiency, Maximum Affordability

The monthly cost for AT&T U-Verse bundles is less expensive than almost every other cable bundle on the market today. For high-speed Internet service alone, the cost is only $35.00 per month without any AT&T DSL Specials. That’s cheaper than dial-up combined with the cost of an additional telephone line and is far less than most cable, satellite or DSL Internet services. Utilizing fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) technology, AT&T U-Verse runs fiber optics to the curb and then sends the signal down a pre-existing cable node to the premises. This will enable AT&T U-Verse to expand more quickly to cities and towns without the huge initial investment required by fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) fiber optics. That having been said, AT&T U-Verse does use FTTP in some circumstances and will likely expand its use as the infrastructure grows.

IPTV Loaded with Features

ATT UVerse promotions offer a host of helpful features such as a wide array of HD channels, four stream DVR recording, the ability to search your local yellow pages, play Yahoo! Games, search for shows or movies using an actor’s name, remote access to the DVR via the Internet, customizable screen with weather, sports and traffic information and view online photos through Flickr! AT&T U-Verse receivers meet Energy Star requirements for IP set-top boxes, about one third of the energy required by a cable box.

AT&T U-Verse has solutions for a full entertainment experience and as it rolls out to more and more areas, expect it to become a major player in the media services sector.
