The real fact is, AT&T has abandoned its u-verse expansion. They simply aren't investing anymore money in it aside from advertising.

They offer 18Mbps max a-sync speeds only in areas where the service already exists. They have no further plans to expand service areas.

youtube has known speeedbumps in place thanks to your ISP.

I get 50/10 cable Internet and sometimes It feels slow to me.I can support 5 vudu HDX streams at once and have done 3 before with no buffering.

10Mbps is unbearably slow for modern Internet. I am a consumer. I buy and rent movies from Vudu, M-GO, AmazonVOD, netflix, youtube. I play games from Steam and Origin. It's worth the price to get 50Mbps if it's available. Especially when you have 3 streaming TVs, 4 computers, and 4 phones/tablets.

We shouldn't have to use it.

There's a change coming on the Internet. Pageviews are a useless metric. Clicks are done for.

True value lays in the userbase. User capital is the new currency. And not selling to advertisers. The single carefully formed tweet, pin, or *sigh* FB wall post can be worth thousands to the right company. What kind of users follow you? Who wants a crack at those users.

I haven't seen an intrusive ad in almost a decade. They are dead. They are a complete waste of money. Banners are done.

The stuff I block with adblock shouldn't be seen for a reason. I block it for a reason. It's already the third tier Internet. It's one step above Nigerian prince email.
