Currently, AT&T Broadband Internet customers surf the network at speeds up to 1.5 Mbps downstream. When sending data, AT&T Broadband Internet customers in former TCI markets have a maximum upstream speed of 128 kbps. AT&T Broadband Internet customers in former MediaOne markets have a maximum upstream speed of 300 kbps. AT&T Broadband is implementing a standard upstream bandwidth speed for all customers in all markets. All AT&T Broadband customers will retain their 1.5 Mbps maximum downstream speed and receive a standard maximum upstream speed of 256 kbps. In former TCI markets, customers will be able to upload files faster because now they'll receive nearly double upstream capacity. The new upstream speed is being implemented. A consistent network platform will allow the company to provide a better customer experience and position it to rollout new services such as speed tiers and ISP choice.


AT&T Broadband will implement the standard 256 kbps maximum upstream speed between May and September 2002. They will implement the standard 256 kbps upstream speed in former TCI markets on a rolling market-by-market basis during May 2002 and expect to be completely finished in June 2002.


AT&T Broadband also is working to standardize other network systems that currently differ between the former TCI and former MediaOne markets. In the case of former MediaOne markets, standardizing these network systems is a prerequisite to standardizing the maximum upstream speed at 256kbps. They will implement the standard 256kbps [presently 300kbps - ltj] upstream speed in former MediaOne markets by September 2002 after other infrastructure systems changes are complete.
