AT&T’s U-Verse Service

A number of my friends have this and seem to be pleased. U-verse is vDSL — even though when I ordered it, they told me it was FibreOptic — and has speeds up to 18MBPS. It’s not been available in my neighbourhood until this month, though the product itself is a few years old. Normally […]

Firefox Continues to Cause Grief at Microsoft 2.0
