Since the beginning of time Cox Communications has been the only hard line connection in my neighborhood. Now AT&T U-Verse is available. I see that U-Verse has a bunch of different channels that I can't get from Cox including The Outdoor Channel. I bundled my Cable, Internet and Telephone with Cox. The only service of the three I have been happy with is the cable Internet which is quite fast. The phone goes out during power outages. My neighbors never loose their AT&T phone service. For a while I had two hard lines, one Cox and one AT&T (paid for by work) and Cox would be dead and AT&T worked fine. The HD channels on the tv can get funky looking occasionally. I get that digital pixel tiling. One of the techs that came out to check out my connection said that Cox can't handle the load when lots of people are watching the same channel. My only concern is the bandwidth on the AT&T internet service. Back when I opted for a cable modem AT&T told me that I was on the fringe for DSL (distance from Central Office) and my service would be on the slower end. I hope that the infrastructure improvements that now enables U-Verse has addressed the Internet bandwidth. It just may be time to switch providers. I sure would like to see some of those shooting programs on the Outdoor Channel.
