The phone companies may be sluggish, but they’re not dead, as evidenced by AT&T’s announcement this morning that it would provide up to 10 mbps download and 1.5 mbps upload speeds to customers in its U-Verse service area. The move puts AT&T’s broadband offerings on par with cable, which is currently eating the telcos’ lunch with triple-play services. Sadly, the U-Verse universe is so far available to only 5.5 million homes in AT&T’s total service area, though the company’s goal is to pass the 17 million-mark by the end of 2008.
