Simplifying Broadband for Today's Consumer

AT&T Uverse vs Time Warner Cable

Time Warner Cable’s least expensive Triple Play package is significantly more expensive than that offered by the AT&T U-verse system, but AT&T’s U-verse actually offers significantly more channels, HD channels, and even offers premium channels that are typically the same price or within a few dollars of comparable Time Warner Cable offerings. In fact, many of the bundles are less expensive on AT&T’s U-verse system while others offer more channels and/or HD content at comparable price points. U-verse also offers faster overall broadband speeds, but does tend to assess a small premium at comparable speed points. Two areas where AT&T holds a significant advantage over Time Warner Cable are the U-verse digital telephone service and the ability of the U-verse system to pause and transfer programming from one STB (Set Top Box) to another.
