AT&T Uverse Speed Drop


Recommended Posts

AT&T Uverse suddenly dropped from 17999 Mbps last Thursday (user interface reading). Starts at night and gets better during the day,  Have been taking test here to log the differences in drop. Funny, an ATT person called me that morning, before the drop in speed and ask if my connections was ok, and I said yes, it was, until that night. A Technician will come out tomorrow and check the line from the street to the box on the house. The modem reboots itself (sure) and the reading goes down considerably, between 9 PM and 11 Pm every night. The lowest reading on the GUI was about 12.3.. during the night, Test My Net shows lowest about 8.5. Hope they can fix this tomorrow. LOVE that Uverse. PS. used the ATT automated tech, and it works. It will even schedule a day and time for the Tech to come out. But I had to make sure and talked to a real person and they came up with the same conclusion. AT&T has been giving great service. thanks for your time. :wave: .

  Another Tech came out this morning and put a NEW 2 wire line from the box on the house to the inside of the house, with a new outlet. The modem hasn't rebooted, and the speed is steady. I needed new wiring. The problem is solved, and a customer is thankful and happy . The tech even cleaned the limbs off the outside wires from the street to the house! GREAT service and high quality workmanship from this AT&T employee..?  If this sounds like I'm sucking up to AT&T, well, maybe, but for good reasons, as mentioned above and my AT&T service has been more than exceptional in my area. Thanks AT&T.
