The Unpublished AT&T Uverse Internet Upstream Speeds


AT&T Uverse removed from their website all references of the upstream speeds of their internet packages, so I’m putting them here on my site:

  • Internet Max: 12 Mbps down, 1.5 Mbps up
  • Internet Max Plus: 18 Mbps down, 1.5 Mbps up
  • Internet Max Turbo: 24 Mbps down, 2.23 Mbps up

I had to call tech support to get these numbers, since they are nowhere on the AT&T web site.  Comparing these to similar offerings from  Comcast (Xfinity), I can see why AT&T wants to hide these numbers.

  • Xfinity Performance: 24 Mbps down, 5 Mbps up
  • Xfinity Blast: 50 Mbps down, 10 Mbps up

Of course, good luck getting  internet service from Comcast without their TV service.

I’m sorry, Bob.  If AT&T can’t get the uplink speeds up, I’m going to have to move on.  I hate Comcast with a passion, but can anyone give me a reason to stay with AT&T?

    Thanks for posting this info–indeed I couldn’t find the info on the ATT site. These upstream speeds are driving me a little crazy. Makes internet backup (like Backblaze) and cloud photo storage services (like Loom) pretty miserable. Even makes remote desktop and dropbox unpleasant. Sigh. Indeed might be time to give Comcast a try.

    Of course switching to Comcast looks like climbing out of the pot into the fire. Check out these irate customers:

    Not only do they have byzantine rates, the Blast service seems to just raise the rate for the first 5MB uploaded or downloaded so as to fool the speedtests. Grrr.

    Any idea what the upload speed is for U-Verse Power? It’s 45 down.

    6 up is a lot better than 1.5, but what is it, like $95 per month?

    I pay $51/month for “Max” where I have 1.5 up and 12 down. The “Power” package is 6 up and 45 down and today it’s $76/month. I’ve decided to hold off for now and instead bring my iMac to the office when I have something big to upload (like an initial cloud back up).

    Thoughts on Time Warner? I have AT &T land line and internet and these two services are just over $98.00 per month. Customer service has well meanting CRS folks but they seem to read from a script that does not answer questions. Admittedly, I do have trouble understanding them. Time Warner provides the two services for $45.73 (their quote) but what about their service?
