There are two kinds of "U-Verse".  One is FTTH (fiber to the home, like
FIOS) and one is FTTN (fiber to the neighborhood/node) with copper
connections ranging up to 3000 ft or so from the central "Node" that use
VDSL2 signaling (100 kHz - 8.4 MHz).  Unfortunately for us most U-Verse
installations are FTTN.  You must have the other.  Lucky devil!
