AT&T U-verse Now Available to 400,000 Homes in Houston

Houston, Texas, October 1, 2007

AT&T U-verseSM TV is making it possible for more Houston customers to choose a new and better television experience. AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that AT&T U-verse TV and Internet services are now available to 400,000 homes in the Houston area. This marks a significant expansion since AT&T U-verse launched locally in November 2006.

AT&T has expanded the Houston availability of AT&T U-verse on an ongoing basis. The service is offered today in parts of communities across Brazoria, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris and Montgomery counties, and there are plans to continue reaching even more customers.

"Around 400,000 Houston homes can now enjoy a television experience that's cooler than cable," said Ed Cholerton, AT&T vice president and general manager for the Houston area. "Today's news could come at no better time for Houston customers who are eager for a new video choice, and we're continuing to make AT&T U-verse TV available more widely."

Texas was the first state where AT&T U-verse services were deployed, thanks to progressive legislation passed in September 2005 by the Texas Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Perry.

AT&T is the only national provider to offer a 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service, making AT&T U-verse TV one of the most advanced television offerings available anywhere. The company recently reached the milestone of more than 100,000 AT&T U-verse customers, and the product 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.
