All of the reviews I have found online for Austin and AT&T Uverse have been awful, but they have all been from 2007/2008.

We will be moving into the Brushy Creek Area.

TIA

I love Uverse. I live in Brushy Creek Area and got Uverse 7 months ago. I have not had any problems - never has gone down. I can't say that for Time Warner. It would go down about once a month which is what prompted me to switch. And I'm paying $62 less per month for the same services.

The key to Uverse is to find out where the fiber terminates - if it terminates at your house you will have a much better experience than if it terminates that the curb. Brushy Creek is new so it should be your house. My friends there like it. I am in Behrens Ranch and love it, the TV guide is much better than TWC which will make you pull your hair out.

Thank you for the information. I will see if I can find out where it terminates.

I'm also in Brushy Creek and after six months with U-verse I can say I'm pleased overall with the service. A nice bonus is that the price hasn't increased, which was rarely the case in any six-month period with Time Warner.

It shouldn't matter if it's fiber to the home or to the curb, your bandwidth profile will be the same either way (it's set by the DSLAM upstream). However you will have a better experience with it (or any service really) in newer homes or at least homes with newer (or proper) cabling to the home. If you buy an old home with shoddy wiring, you'll hate uverse but i imagine you'll hate TWC in that scenario as well. So basically having fiber to the house guarantees you'll have little or no issues with service, but it's not a requirement.

The only complaints i've ever directly heard from friends about UVerse is the limitation on streams into the house and the centralized DVR. One friend had 7 TV's in his house (each kid had one as well as the common areas), so he would hit up against the stream limit a lot (i wouldn't recommend it if you have that many TVs). He also had purchased a TIVO in each room and didn't like the total home dvr model because of that investment. Other then that, i've heard good things from pretty much everyone i know who has used it. I personally prefer it, but i've said that here several times.
