Now if only U-Verse would get their butt in gear and be available in my neighborhood... Not sure how I feel about wireless TV either because of the latency involved in transmitting wireless signals. Plus the higher number of devices the slower it will get. What I would hope is that they have a hybrid solution so that you have both options in a home.
AT&T does give you the option of having both a 'Wired" receiver, and "Wireless" receiver. Also there is no latency issue. There is a separate wireless access point that uses "N" 5.4 GHZ technology to broadcast the wireless signal separate from the wireless gateway provided by AT&T. I have 1 wireless receiver, and 4 wired set top boxes and all work great including the WiFi receiver and I personally think it has a better picture quality then the Motorola 2250 DVR I have. Seems as though AT&T/Cisco (company whom makes the WiFi receiver) did their homework on the wireless receiver before releasing it to the public. The technician who installed my U-Verse service told me this has been in testing for the last 2 years. I've had it since November 5th and never an issue. When U-Verse is offered in your area, I would suggest signing up as soon as possible to get an install. When they were laying the fiber-optic lines in my neighborhood and everyone found out what was going on, everyone started calling AT&T to switch from Cox Cable and I ended up waiting almost 6 weeks to have my service installed. It was worth it though because it's a very cool and modern system. Not sure how Cox, Time Warner Cable plan on competing with AT&T's product.
Sounds like a good service, what does it cost per month?
Are there DATA Caps in place with it?
At what rate do you get your data from their service?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
