We have had AT&T U-Verse for a few years mainly due to the fact that there are no other providers in our neighborhood. Our signal has always been patchy. Sometimes we lose connectivity for days at a time. When we talk to AT&T all they do is send a technician the next day to replace our modem. That usually lasts for about a week. Then repeat. I've lived in several countries around the world and I have never experienced internet connectivity problems worse than when I am in Los Angeles!
