Is "Uverse" for You?
"Uverse" is a bundled service currently being offered by AT&T that combines your land line telephone, high speed internet and HD television into a single package. All these services are brought into your home or office through a device called a "residential gateway". This is basically a large modem type device (pictured below) that will manage the incoming digital signals to provide you with digital HD television, high speed internet and land line telephone, or any combination of those services. The gateway device is approximately 12" x 10" x 2", so while it is not as small as, say, a cable modem, it can be used either upright or lying down.
The RG (Residential Gateway pictured above) is connected to the outside world via a coax cable run from your outside telephone box. The phone box on the outside of you home will be replaced by the tech with a digital box to provide the signal to the RG. He will run a triple shielded coax cable from that box to your RG. Each television in your home or office will also have to have either a coax cable or cat 5 network cable run to it to connect to the set top box (STB) that will be provided by the technician. The STB (pictured below) is relatively small and simple to use. A STB is required for each TV and there is a fee for each STB ($7.00/mo at the time of this publication). The remote control that is included with each STB is relative small and very easy to use. The tech will also program it to the particular TV in that room so you will only need to use one remote control.
