sean, what part of town are you in?
I just spoke to my contact in San Antonio about this and this is his exact statement to me.
"We are testing the Intellistar computers in 4 different VRAD's at the moment and see how they work inside the cabinets. They can't do it by VHO since The Weather Channel has different reporting stations for different parts of town."

The new Stars are supposed to be rack mounted server types of computers. No clue what kind of room there is in a VRAD

Think about Comcast though, every area would have the closest observation pointed to your area when you had their service though or any cable company to be exact really.
They must be using loads of Stars as well too then.

sean fyi u have or did have a uverse mgr living in magnolia ... fwiw
i know magnolia is not a large pop for uverse yet...
so my point is that area would make a good controlled test area maybe >??

OMG...Uverse is STEALING THE SIGNAL!!!!!
Lets hope that the pilot works for them and they roll it out from coast to coast.

I am thinking that as well too.....but still makes you wonder how and where the Star is being placed though.
I know there are quite a few guys that work for at&t that live out in this area, and makes me wonder if that's how we got the service before even major parts of houston has it yet.
I also noted in a previous thread that i was getting a faster internet speed after an issue that i had recently with the service, they uncapped my speed and am getting a very fast download and upload speed as well.
I'm trying to take a pic of both these things at the same time also.

Depends what package you have? OK, mine is horrible! I'm on Pro and it's usually 2800/2900!
Just tried CA and ME, same bad numbers. I'm attributing it to nightly maint.
