DALLAS, March 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T* is giving more consumers a faster broadband choice that doesn't break the bank. AT&T today announced the expansion of AT&T U-verse(SM) High Speed Internet Max Turbo to every U-verse market, offering broadband speeds of up to 24 Mbps downstream and up to 3 Mbps upstream.
Available today for AT&T U-verse residential and small business customers, Max Turbo is the fastest Internet package available from the nation's leading provider of broadband services. AT&T U-verse services are offered in 120 markets across 22 states. Max Turbo was initially launched in Austin, San Antonio and St. Louis in December 2009.
"Max Turbo is the latest example of how we're bringing consumers and small businesses the choice of better services and faster speeds with AT&T U-verse," Mark Collins, senior vice president of data and voice products, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. "With a large majority of U-verse TV customers bundling U-verse Internet, we know we're giving our customers the broadband choice they want. Customers value our high-quality and integrated bundle of award-winning U-verse TV, fast Internet and voice and wireless services, and they love that we're continually adding more to improve their experience — more features, more apps and more speed."
AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet Max Turbo is available to eligible residential customers for $65 a month as part of a bundle with AT&T U-verse TV. Professional standard installation is included for new U-verse TV customers, and current U-verse Internet residential and small business customers can upgrade their package at any time.
AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet Max Turbo is available to eligible small business customers for $95 a month.
In addition to more speed, U-verse Internet customers have the freedom to enjoy their broadband connection in more places — all at no extra cost. U-verse Internet customers can stay connected with on-the-go access to the nation's largest Wi-Fi network with more than 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi(SM) hotspots. Consumers and small businesses can visit www.attwifi.com for a list of AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the U.S.
AT&T is the nation's largest provider of wireless and wireline broadband service, with 17.3 million broadband subscribers, including 2.1 million U-verse broadband connections as of the fourth quarter of 2009. More than 90 percent of U-verse TV customers bundle U-verse High Speed Internet.
Residential customers who bundle U-verse TV and Internet services enjoy several innovative applications, powered by AT&T's Internet Protocol (IP)-based network. For example, U-verse TV and Internet customers have the ability to program DVR recordings from their Web-connected mobile phone or PC; view personalized, on-screen weather, sports, traffic and stock information via AT&T U-bar; and the ability to view personalized tournament brackets on their U-verse TV screen during college basketball season.
