I can't access FB from work. What's the picture of?
If you're talking bout the link I sent, there's 2 little kids that want a cat. Dad won't let them have one, but then someohow they come to an agreement that if they get 1,000 likes on facebook, they can have a cat. So mom takes a picture of these 2 little kids holding a sign telling you what I just told you. As of last night, they had over 118,000 likes.

Ha!
Are you implying that a 3some would start? You're a real gutter mind, know that?

Anyone have AT&T U-verse for TV & internet? I'm switching to them from crappy Comcast when I move - I've heard nothing but good things (compared to nothing but negative comments and experiences with Comcast) and it'll be a lot cheaper too. The only downside is that apparently the installation is a bit of a process and might take hours. Yes, hours. But it will be worth it. I'm hoping it won't take TOO long since I only have one TV.

They have to install a satellite dish (att uses direct tv.) Then run all the wires and stuff, so that can take a little time. Installing the internet shouldn't take as long though.

I think ATT discontinued their association with Direct. Isn't this U-verse a plumped up version of cable but through the phone lines?

I do have Dish and I would not trade that for cable or ATT.
You really have to check the fine print for prices on this stuff.

Oh, I miss my U-verse. I used to have it. Then I moved and had to have Comcast.

When I had it years ago, installation took about an hour. Probably depends how much wiring you need.

I miss my U-verse!

I am on the low tech end of things. When I was shopping for the smartphone I looked at Consumer Reports. I know they rated cable service too. It won't help if you don't have a choice but they are very good about explaining what you are getting into

According to my friend at work who has U-verse, they don't use a dish. I think I remember another friend telling me that they use the same cable lines as the cable company (the phone lines would be DSL but isn't that obsolete?).

Everyone has their own preference. I did love U-verse, though.

Here's about their lines: http://www.att.com/u-verse/explore/fiber-tech...

Cool, thanks.

I just talked to my friend who told me they use cable lines, and he said he'd give his left nut to have U-verse again (he moved to a tiny little town with limited options).

Didn't realize that, guess I'm behind on the times. I switched to direct tv first and changed my internet over later (dam Comcast pzzed me off for the last time!) The router and stuff was a little expensive, but now I'm paying 30 a mo for internet and 78 for TV (no movie channels). Does that seem reasonable or am I getting screwed?

I'm paying $15 to ATT for the slowest speed and about $70 to Dish for two separate receivers, DVD, middle programming, no premium channels.The only problem is when there is a really bad thunderstorm, not that frequent. I get a great picture without the HD service. And I have a connection on the back of the receiver for my outside antenna. I use multiple remotes for two other rooms with a TV. I just wire them up from the basement. The guy who installed Dish when I changed from Direct couldn't figure out my wiring. But it all works.

The *only* thing I don't like about having a dish is that it doesn't work well in bad weather.

But the internet still works so I can still watch the game and or porn.

Still better than Crapcast.

cable seems like it's in the same ballpark as Nick.

Internet: First six months are $15 or $25/month (depending on which of the two ways you go), second six months are $45/month, then after that it goes up to $62/month. I think $62 for internet is ridiculous.

Crapcast's service has gotten worse and worse over the years, and the people they hire as contractors for the internet part are SCARY. They must recruit next to crack houses or something. And these people know less about wireless networking than I do.
