Unfortunately not. I've switched back to Comcast once my area received the recent upgrade. Problems I had with U-Verse include:
- extremely poor HD picture quality when watching live sports. Football in particular is painful to watch on U-verse. For whatever reason it cannot handle the action
- No local digital sub-channels. Not particularly a deal breaker by itself, but cumulative with the other reasons listed just made it an easier decision to switch back to Comcast
- Video on Demand is laughable compared to Comcast. Comcast beats AT&T hands down in this area, there simply is no comparison
- No Local Weather on the 8's. All U-verse offers is its accuweather application that always seemed to be about 15 to 30 minutes behind the times. Not really a big deal unless there are t-storm or tornados about at which time it becomes a really big deal. Since there are no local digital sub-channels, you also do not have access to Channel 2's weather station. Local on the 8's in HD on Comcast (when it's working) is very nice.
- Limit of 4 streams. Never thought that would be a problem when I went to U-verse but there were times when I could not watch a program due to recording 4 different shows. Of course, on Comcast, I can only record 2 shows at a time so this is somewhat a wash, but at least on Comcast, when I'm recording 2 shows, I can watch something else on another TV.
Pluses for U-verse include the instant switching of channels with no delay, Also, U-verse's anyroom DVR is much better implemented than Comcast's. Finally, I really enjoyed HD-Net and the Smithsonian Channel which are not available on Comcast here.
