Why is it so hard to answer a simple question...
Can "everyone" get 3 streams of HD right now?????
The answer, of course, is no!
Now stop doing AT&T self promotion work here. We all know that the reason people cannot all get 3 streams of HD is due to the FACT that AT&T uses old copper phone line from the VRAD (fiber) to our homes and this copper does not have the same bandwidth as other distribution methods.
So how can anyone say that this is not limiting?
You also did not answer how you would like Uverse if you were one of the people stuck with 1 stream of HD.
This IS a serious limitation because in this new age of HD, telling cutomers that they cannot watch HD because AT&T went cheap and did not want to run fiber to our homes, we often cannot watch what we want because the old copper phone line that Uverse uses cannot carry enough bandwidth to support many streams of HD at the same time.
Whatever new technology AT&T may or may not use in the future does nothing to help people now.
I mean come on now.... do you really want to go on record as saying that 1 or 2 streams of HD for a "large" number of Uverse customers is not a serious limitation. I'm recording a show in HD and I either cannot watch anything in HD or all my sets in the home are limited to 1 channel (depending if you get 1 or 2 streams of HD) so everyone can flip a coin to see who watches HD.
This is not a problem or serious?
