The main thing to know about AT&T U-verse is that maximum download speeds vary from location to location. Most homes will have the option of download speeds somewhere between 3 to 18 Mbps.
However, AT&T's fiber-optic network is going through an expansion right now. Many urban areas can get the upgraded version of U-verse called AT&T Gigapower with speeds up to 1,000 Mbps (1 Gbps).
As of mid-2016, those areas include around 20 major metropolitan cites and their suburbs across 8 states.
AT&T is looking to double the number of locations with access to their GigaPower speeds in the next couple of years. Check their coverage map to see if they plan on expanding the network to your city.
If AT&T U-verse is available at your home, then don't forget to look into bundles. You can bundle U-verse Internet with digital TV, digital home phone service, and even DIRECTV satellite television.
