I would not be an early adopter. AT&T chose an IP platform because it is much cheaper to deploy than a fiber infrastructure. Bandwidth issues are significant on this platform. They are still in the learning stages of implementation and ongoing support. Technology that does not currently exist is needed to make it a robust HD service. In my opinion, Verizon has made the better long-term decision in utilizing a fiber backbone for television delivery. Of course, consumers won't be able to choose between the platforms. It is wholly dependent on the franchise area where you reside. I live in AT&T territory and would love to replace my DirecTv service but don't see that happening for a long time.
