Sorry, no employee and not a shareholder..
If the service was bad, I would be the first one to tell you. No complaints as of yet.

att uverse all the way. if u into hd and good pic quality thats the way to go. especially if ur in san antone. att is anchored here. they get the kinks ironed out here first then upgrade the rest of the country once they find out what works here. it is a new technology but a great one. also there tech support is great compared to twc. very helpful and kind. i should know. im one of them. the only reason i havent switched is because my apartments dont get uverse as of now. but we have a lab with uverse at my work and the quality and internet is great. and ya that guy who says he pays $89 per month for twc is a great negotiator because ive never heard of a price that low for the services he is getting. especially not from twc.

That's why I'm sticking with it. My bill came to $96.99 last month including taxes/fees.

I think this new competition is going to bring pricees to at least a stable point. Looks what happened with broadband prices in the past few years, they have gone down while speeds have gone up.

I expect the same thing to occur as the competition heats up.

Sooner or later U-verse will raise their rates. The cost to distribute (meaning the amount they pay to the channels MTV, ESPN, NFL football) will go up.. do you think they will eat the cost? Heck no.. we will eat it as a consumer. Sooner or later the prices will go up..

Actually for the near future, they are probably going to see their programming costs go down as they are currently a small player in the video market, which makes their content deals more expensive right now. Now as they become a bigger player their proramming costs are going to go down.

Also since they are iptv they probably only have to pay for what actually gets watched, and not what gets broadcast to every home.

It is going to be interesting to see how this all plays out.
