It would be nice if AT&T would offer UVerse on the east side of Tilly Mill. Hey, can Ken ask for that?

There are still many areas of Dunwoody that cannot get UVerse.

I have to say (and not to make everyone who can't get it yet jealous), we love U-verse.

We had a terrible time with reliable high speed internet from both Comcast and Bell South. U-verse has been a real gift since we work from home many times.

It is slowly making its way across Dunwoody.

We live inside the perimeter, and we've had UVerse for a while. We've had them all - Comcast sucked, you were either traveling at blazing fast speeds (yeah!) or at zero. Once we were at zero, when my wife was working from home and I was doing an online course. So we ditched Comcast. Bellsouth DSL was better, except when bad weather approached. Then the system would go down. Other people with DSL said they had no issues, but ours was always iffy. So when ATT bought Bell, the sales force was knocking soon after and we took them up on it.
Uverse is good, except for one thing (easily fixed) - they tried to make my desktop wireless - hooked up a little cheap wireless transmitter - that thing sucked. Wired everything up to a switch, and its been all good ever since, and cheaper.

I signed on for U-Verse and promptly cancelled the order two days later. The sales person who came to my door, while extremely nice and friendly, misquoted the prices so it was much more expensive than I had previously thought. U-Verse is by far the most expensive option once you get past the introductory period. Most residents do not need all the bells and whistles U-Verse has. After a lot of research and price comparison, I chose ClearWire and love it. I pay $50 a month for internet and phone and I've had no problems with speed or transmission. I live on the east side of Tilly Mill and both U-Verse and Clear Wire are available there.

I tried several times to sign up for U-Verse after learning that the salesman came calling on my street. I assumed that I wasn't home that day but later came to learn that he skipped my house because my address was not in the system. How could my address not be in the system? I live in the middle of my 9 home neighborhood, with our houses approaching 26 years old -- its not like were the new kids on the block. I called AT&T to inquire and they said it must have been an oversight on why my house was not included on the U-Verse eligible list. I pushed a little further and they said maybe I was too far from the box, and when I responded with the fact that my neighbors of either side of my are eligible, AT&T flip-flopped and said maybe I was too close. Are you serious? Can't they just own up to their omission and correct it? They assured me that a technician would come out to the box in my yard and conform that I am eligible and I would be contacted very shortly. That was 6 months ago! No thanks AT&T... I've moved on and no longer interested in your overpriced service.

We changed from Comcast to AT&T U-verse a couple of months ago and really are enjoying it! However, I like to watch the Dekalb BOE meetings on my TV (Dekalb's PDS-24). I can't seem to find this station anywhere on my TV! Has anyone else had this problem? If you were able to find it, please enlighten me as to which channel I need to be watching. Thanx

I really enjoy the UVerse service and as soon as the video feed of city meetings is perfected, a push of Dunwoody TV to the web via public access channels is a possibility if it costs very, very little. Would you believe I almost went with Comcast just to see the DeKalb Commission and BOE Meetings because they are not currently available on other carriers, but sanity kicked in.

These meetings are available on line at http://www.co.dekalb.ga.us/dctv/ and http://www.dekalb.k12.ga.us/pds24/vod

It appears that I can get Cobb County Meetings, City of Covington, Gwinnett County and LaGrange on the UVerse system if I am ever interested.
