I've lived at my current location for going on 8 years. Started out with Sprint provided wireless broadband and then had to switch to a couple of other providers when Sprint sold their spectrum to another entity. Our land line at the time was provided by AT&T, but they were using an old zip code so it actually took us a month or so to get that established after we moved in. So as you can imagine the zip code issue made trying to order broadband service from AT&T fun. At first I get told service isn't available. Then months later I'm searching again and actually schedule an install only to have it cancelled. Then I finally just give up and stick with wireless broadband, but get on a notification list of AT&T for when service might be available at my house. Last Fall I get an email notifying me that not only is broadband service available now, but my house is able to get Uverse. I asked the technician who did my install what changed with the cabling in my area to open up Uverse as an option and he didn't have an answer. Said something about reconditioning the line, but who knows. Didn't make any sense to me, but I'm just happy to have wired broadband service. Thankfully things have been pretty solid and we haven't looked back . . .
