LAFAYETTE, La., Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands more Lafayette-area residents have a new choice for their Internet and television, thanks to wider availability of AT&T U-verse® services. AT&T* today announced that U-verse expanded to nearly 2,500 additional local customer locations in September.
The services include AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet, AT&T U-verse TV and AT&T U-verse Voice. The expansion is part of AT&T's Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan to expand and enhance AT&T's wireless and wireline Internet Protocol (IP) broadband networks. The plan was announced in 2012. It's being driven by growing customer demand for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud services.
A large amount of the local growth – nearly 1,500 customer locations – took place in Lafayette during September. Customer locations were also added in other area cities, towns and neighborhoods.
AT&T U-verse offers customers the freedom to watch hit TV shows virtually anywhere – using a TV, computer, tablet or smartphone – and access to extensive HD channels, competitive Internet speeds, flexible bundles of services and continued innovation. Customers can view live TV shows, On Demand content and manage DVR recordings on more than 30 select devices through the U-verse App available in iTunes or Google Play. These features are also accessible by logging on to U-verse.com, where customers can stream more than 300,000 TV shows, movies, sports and more at no extra charge.
"It's gratifying to hear the positive impact these services make on the lives of AT&T customers," said Rich Guidotti, AT&T vice president and general manager, Gulf States. "They tell us they have become even closer to their friends and family members, and better equipped to deliver their best at work because of U-verse's ability to make TV, Internet and voice services work together seamlessly."
