Video choice and competition have reached Louisville consumers in a big way. AT&T* today announced that AT&T U-verse® services, including AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice, are now available to more than 100,000 living units across Louisville.
“Having U-verse in Louisville is good for competition and consumers,” said Councilman Kevin Kramer.
“I look forward to working with AT&T as they continue to invest in our city.”
AT&T U-verse services, which are all delivered over AT&T’s advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network, offer a new alternative to cable with a better DVR, better features and apps, and a better TV experience. AT&T U-verse brings together your TV, broadband, home phone and AT&T wireless services ― all on one bill ― with unique features that provide a new level of integration, convenience and control.
“Kentucky is well served by legislative leaders who understand the public policy environment necessary to attract investment and telecommunications expansion,” said AT&T Kentucky President Mary Pat Regan. “This milestone is an important one, but we look forward to more good news in the future.”
Since launching AT&T U-verse services in Louisville, Hopkinsville and Oak Grove, Kentucky, AT&T has continued its efforts to make the service more widely available to consumers. In just the first six months of this year, AT&T invested more than $80 million in its wireless and wireline networks to continue improving service for customers in Kentucky. Upgrades to the AT&T wireless network included new cell sites, expanded mobile broadband coverage and increased 3G capacity. The investment also included upgrades to the AT&T wireline infrastructure, such as expanded AT&T U-verse services, additional AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots, and extended reach of broadband services.
