I've had U-verse @ 18 down, 2 up for about... two years? Something like that.

I don't have a static IP, but my IP has never changed during that time, so that hasn't yet been a problem.

No outages. Every time I have checked speeds have been exactly as advertised. I can steadily clear about 220KB/s up and 2200KB/sec down.

Their router is lame. I just forward its ports to an internal one.

They also have not implemented a cap for me.

As far as mail service goes, I use a VPS from somewhere else. They block outbound port 25, which is why you tell your VPS running postfix to accept mail on the well-known submission port (589). :)

TW only does static IPs with Business Class. And my cable TV cost is outrageous even with the so-called "retention" which is a lot less benefit when you only have the TV and not the full 3-way package.
