AT&T U-verse Overview
AT&T is one of the largest vDSL providers in the US. Originally AT&T was one of the main home phone providers in the United States, but as technology and consumers needs have changed, AT&T has been working to change as well.
Today AT&T offers phone service and internet under the U-verse brand and they also offer Satellite TV with their recent acquisition of DirecTV.
Above you will find the latest deals and bundles offered by AT&T and DirecTV.
How to Choose Between AT&T U-verse Deals and Plans
When choosing between different U-verse promotions, there are 3 main things all consumers should take into consideration before signing up.
1 -- Total Monthly Cost
One of the most important factors regardless of whether you're looking at triple play bundles that include TV, internet, and phone or you are just looking for a single service is the total cost you'll be paying monthly.
Above we've collected the latest deals directly from AT&T U-verse but depending on the taxes and what equipment your household needs the plan may be a bit more than the promotional price.
Keep in mind that additional equipment like TV boxes and modems can add up so keep this in mind when ordering and always look at the price in the checkout before signing up.
2 -- With a Contract vs Without a Contract
Another important factor to consider when choosing a plan is whether you should have a contract or not. Our general advice is that if you are unsure of whether you'll be moving during your contract, you should not get a contract.
Here is why: If you sign up for a plan with a contract and cancel your service, you'll face an early termination charge. This charge, also known as an ETF, catches many consumers off guard so make sure to verify the plan you are signing up for is one that fits your needs.
We do our best to mark plans with ETFs, but always verify it with the provider directly.
3 -- What Services Will You Use?
It is tough to live without an internet connection in today's world and many families still use a home phone and traditional TV, but one of the most common questions we get asked at BroadbandNow is "How do I lower my cable/internet bill?"
The easiest answer to this question is to only order the services you know you'll use, regardless of the promotion.
As a consumer it's hard to pass up a great deal and AT&T is know for running competitive offers.
That said, before you sign up for a promotion that includes TV, internet, and phone evaluate your needs and only order the services you really need.
This may sound obvious, but by only ordering the services you really need you'll not only be saving on the cost of those services, but also the taxes, fees, and equipment charges that may accompany them.

The Technology That Powers AT&T U-verse
With the rise of fiber optic internet connections, more and more consumers are interested in the technology that powers their internet connection.
With U-verse, vDSL powers their internet, home phone, and some cases TV connections. But, with AT&T's acquisition of DirecTV more and more consumers are receiving their TV service via satellite.
