Simplifying Broadband for Today's Consumer

AT&T U-verse vs Comcast

AT&T U-verse offers Triple Play bundles which start at price points significantly lower than bundles offered by Comcast, and usually offer better features. Additionally, the ability to pause and transfer video amongst different U-verse enabled STBs (Set Top Boxes) gives Uverse a tangible edge over Comcast’s offerings. Comcast’s Xfinity broadband tends to be a better value from a strictly download-speed-for-the-dollar basis, but AT&T’s U-verse relies on a low-ping vDSL that may prove superior for some tasks.
