One thing to consider - apparently, U-verse (and AT&T DSL) bandwidth caps are to be implemented soon:

AT&T will cap DSL and U-Verse internet, impose overage fees (update) -- Engadget

The TV portion of U-verse isn't supposed to count against the cap. Might be a problem for heavy users of streaming video services, though.

Was one of the first to signup for U-Verse in '06 (I think). Very happy.

Bandwidth cap is probably not a factor for 95% of users.

We got it and will never go back. It's a really great system. Plus, we've been more pleased with their customer service over TW's, which was horrid.

I used Time Warner the first year I was in San Antonio and it was always disconnecting me. I would call for servicemen to be sent out here and they never came until like 11pm at night.

So now I have Uverse. Good service.

I love Uverse.. IMO TW cannot even mesure up to them. I had TW for years before, and I am never going back.

I will probably be leaving uverse soon. It wasn't that bad at first, but lately it has absolutely sucked. Video is constantly freezing and the boxes are always locking up. The price constantly increases too, but you don't get any extra features except for maybe yet another few channels you'll never watch.

service is good, but the HD quality leaves MUCH to be desired. Only so much bandwidth they can push along that last mile of copper...and the compression sure shows it!

Over the air HD signals looked noticeably better than u-verse. That + data caps mean that I would not go with them if I had to do it all again.
