AT&T U-verse Expands Availability to 300,000 Living Units in the Detroit Area
Detroit, Michigan, October 30, 2007
AT&T U-verseSM is changing the television experience in the Detroit area — in a big way. AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that AT&T U-verse TV and Internet services are now available to 300,000 living units in Southeast Michigan, marking a significant expansion since AT&T U-verse launched locally in May 2007.
Since introducing U-verse services in Michigan, AT&T has expanded availability of the service on an ongoing basis. AT&T U-verse is offered today in parts of Southeast Michigan as far south as Wyandotte and as far north as Lake Orion.
"Now more potential customers in Detroit can enjoy AT&T U-verse, and we'll continue to expand our availability so consumers have access to a new and exciting television choice with the content they want, including channels like the Big Ten Network," said Jennifer Jones, AT&T vice president and general manager for Michigan.
The expansion of AT&T U-verse services in Michigan follows progressive legislation passed by the Michigan Legislature and signed in December 2006 by Governor Jennifer Granholm.
AT&T is the only national provider to offer a 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service, making U-verse TV one of the most advanced television offerings available anywhere. The company recently reached the milestone of more than 100,000 U-verse customers, and AT&T U-verse has been recognized as the 2007 Best Business Strategy by industry analyst firm Stratecast.
The deployment of next-generation video services, including AT&T U-verse TV and AT&T HomezoneSM, reflects AT&T's strategy to become customers' preferred communications and entertainment provider and to deliver a video solution through its traditional footprint that provides greater value, flexibility and simplicity than competitors' offerings.
