AT&T Introduces New Bundle Choices and Savings for Consumers
Consumers Can Choose the Right Bundle of Services, Including Wireless, Starting at $99 with One-Year Price Guarantee
Dallas, Texas, March 22, 2010
AT&T* is putting a new twist on the $99 bundle. Other providers offer customers a fixed bundle of TV, Internet and home phone service, but with the new AT&T bundle offers announced today, customers can choose three services for their bundle — and select wireless as their voice option — and get more features and premium services included than ever before.
The new AT&T “Choice” bundles start at $99 a month for qualifying services and provide a combination of TV, high speed Internet, home phone or wireless voice service — an option not available in most cable bundles. Bundles can include DVR and DVR service, plus a one-year price guarantee and significant monthly savings.
“At AT&T, we know that customers want flexibility, value, great service plus the option to include wireless voice service as part of their bundles,” said Joey Schultz, vice president of consumer marketing, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “We’re introducing amazing bundle deals built around choice, and we’re including more features and more savings. Whatever combination and plans you choose, customers are getting even more from their AT&T bundle.”
AT&T U-verseSM Choice bundles start at $99 a month for three AT&T services, including U-family; U-verse High Speed Internet Pro (up to 3 Mbps downstream); and your choice of AT&T Nation 450 wireless voice or U-verse Voice 250 home phone — providing a savings of $180 or more for one year.
You can choose larger TV packages, faster broadband speeds and more wireless or home phone calling minutes to get additional savings. For example, an AT&T U-verse Choice Plus bundle provides you with double the number of U-verse TV channels, double the broadband speed and more wireless minutes or unlimited home phone calling for as low as $127 a month and savings of up to $360 for one year. The Choice Premier bundle offers all the U-verse channels and premium movies, HD service, faster broadband speeds and wireless voice or unlimited home phone calling for under $150 a month and savings of up to $540 for one year.
And where U-verse service is not available, customers can also get significant savings for bundling any triple-play combination of DIRECTV® CHOICE XTRATM package, high speed Internet, AT&T Nation 450 wireless plan or a home phone calling plan. These AT&T bundles range from $96 to $155 a month and provide up to $528 for one year.
Customers who bundle their services with AT&T receive several advanced, integrated features and benefits. AT&T wireless customers have access to the nation’s fastest 3G network, the ability to talk and surf at the same time on its 3G network, the most popular smartphones, and Rollover®, which lets customers keep the minutes they don’t use.
AT&T High Speed Internet packages and qualifying AT&T smartphone plans also include on-the-go access across the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network at more than 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots.
And AT&T wireless, TV, Internet, and home phone services work together so you can program your U-verse or DIRECTV® DVR from your PC or wireless phone; track your personalized college basketball bracket or fantasy football league that you create online on your U-verse TV screen; check your wireless and U-verse Voice messages from a single voice mailbox; or see your U-verse Voice call history and click to return a call from your U-verse TV.
