AT&T U-Verse now offers 10 Mbps download speed

AT&T announced today that it is boosting speeds for some of its AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet customers and offering AT&T broadband customers access to free Wi-Fi hotspots across the country. AT&T says that more than 10 million of its AT&T Broadband subscribers will soon have free unlimited access to its nationwide Wi-Fi network.

AT&T figures that is a cost savings of $60 annually for its broadband customers and a savings of nearly $240 annually for customers who don’t have AT&T broadband. The free Wi-Fi offer will be available to both new and existing subscribers who have any of AT&T’s broadband services with downstream speeds of 1.5 Mbps, 3.0 Mbps, or 6 Mbps.

AT&T also announced that it was boosting bandwidth choices for its U-verse customers to 10 Mbps. Millions of AT&T subscribers will be able to upgrade to data plans with 10 Mbps downstream and 1.5 Mbps upstream. Customers who upgrade to the new U-verse 10 Mbps plan will also get the free Wi-Fi access in the U.S. as well.

AT&T claims the largest broadband network in the United States with over 13.8 million broadband lines in service as of Q3 2007. AT&T says its U-Verse service is available in millions of homes in 12 different states right now.

With the future of municipal Wi-Fi access questionable, this offer from AT&T may be the best chance of getting free Wi-Fi Internet users get.

"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
