Do any of you use AT&T U-Verse Internet? If so, how is your latency, ect.

I currently have Charter Internet (cable) and it's very unstable. I'm getting excessive packet loss because the node is oversold. I've had six techs come to my home (even the tech supervisor) and the problem still exists. All the wiring in my home is brand new.

My only choices of Internet are DSL (6 Mbps DL / 786 Kbps UL), AT&T U-Verse (18 Mbps DL / 1.5 Mbps UL) and Charter (50 Mbps DL / 4 Mbps UL).

Standard DSL won't work very well for streaming, so what do you guys suggest? I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about AT&T U-Verse..... Any information would be really appreciated.

I play on U-verse with a 15up/1.5 down plan and I usually get between 11and 12 up and 1 down.

I also have a 30 minute drive to my west coast server location and I have 9-15 ping regularly.

I've used AT&T U-Verse since it came out (I actually sold it door to door for a while lul).  I love AT&T U-verse, I can't get Verizon in San Antonio and it's miles ahead of Time Warner (my only other real option).

Completely and honestly, U-verse was the absolute worst internet i've ever had. The customer support was AWFUL and the tech's never did anything. so fucking frustrating

Eh must be an area thing, the service is perfect for me and I've had it for like 3 years at different locations, I love it.

if your area cant provide more upload there is no possibility of getting more upload. got the same issue here.

AT&T is really good, but i have to agree their customer help and shit is so aweful, for example i was getting around 190MS and it was clearly my ISP so i called them up they tried to help me for like a good hour and told me its on my end and i log back on like 20 minutes later and have my normal 20ms again... checked my routers I.P and they changed it.

Bitches fixed the problem but did not want to admit their was a problem on their part :S but what do i care i get 20ms again now :P and my upload and download speed is ridiculously good.

I have the 15down/1.5up plan as well. I get about 13-14 down and 1.4 up on most speed tests. I've been very pleased with it so far. Streaming works pretty well. I'm not super close to the server location, so my ping usually sits around 40.
