Would you go with U-Verse or Charter for internet?

Depends if you live in the city, or a rural area. Charter (cable) is extremely slow if you live in a rural area (your plan might give you 30mb, but will actually only receive 2mb), so you would be better off going with U-verse in that case. If you live in a city and can afford to pay a little extra for much better speeds, go with Charter.

Also keep in mind if anyone else is going to use the connection and for what.

360 games cap at around 8 kilobytes per second. This includes game and chat data.

When an ISP gives you a Mbps number, divide that by 8 and you'll get the speed in megabytes that you should be getting.

Anything above even .01 Mbps would theoretically work.

Also, the Xbone will need a recommended speed of 1.5mbps

It's their "ultimate" internet... whatever the hell that means.

But it's nice being able to download 20gbs off of PSN while streaming on two separate devices in my house simultaneously without any hiccups ^_^
