AT&T’s U-verse Service Hits Milestone

Dec 18, 2008  •  Post A Comment

AT&T has reached an important milestone, tallying the millionth customer for its U-verse Internet protocol suite of services, the company announced Tuesday.
AT&T U-verse uses fiber-optic technology, allowing for high-speed Internet, high-definition television and phone service.
The service is available in 79 markets in 16 states. AT&T first made U-verse available to consumers nearly two and a half years ago.
“Reaching this milestone, in this short time period, further validates our video strategy and shows that we’re providing customers with a better choice and a better experience than cable,” said Ralph de la Vega, chief executive officer of AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
“We’re using our all-IP U-verse platform and our wireless assets to give customers what they want, in a way that no one else can,” he said.
In 2008, U-verse added new features including expanded hi-def DVR capabilities, more than 85 HD channels and integration with Flickr and Yahoo! Fantasy Football.
“We will continue evolving AT&T U-verse, expanding availability and adding more applications and integrated features that improve what our customers can do not only with their TV, but across the three screens,” Mr. de la Vega said.
