AT&T U-verse Arrives in the Piedmont Triad.
Piedmont Triad residents now have a new choice for their television and communications services powered by the most advanced technology. AT&T today announced the launch of AT&T U-verse services in parts of Guilford, Forsyth, Rockingham and Alamance counties, including AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice.
AT&T U-verse services, which are all delivered over AT&T’s advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network, offer a new alternative to cable with a better DVR, better features and apps, and a better TV experience. AT&T U-verse brings together your TV, broadband, home phone and AT&T wireless services — all on one bill — with unique features that provide a new level of integration, convenience and control.
“Today’s expansion of AT&T U-verse reflects our commitment to make the investments necessary to bring consumers across the Piedmont Triad a new era of true video competition,” said Cynthia Marshall, AT&T North Carolina president. “We are thrilled to offer this innovative video choice to customers in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Burlington and other communities in the region. Local residents have asked for more choices in television service and today we’re delivering.”
AT&T U-verse is being expanded in North Carolina thanks to the work of legislators such as Representatives Harold Brubaker and Alma Adams, who co-sponsored legislation to create the environment that encourages new video providers, such as AT&T NC, to invest in North Carolina and compete against incumbent cable providers.
"Competition on the field, in politics, and in business is healthy. And competition in business is good for consumers. I applaud AT&T for their efforts to offer video services to consumers. Options and choice are what help bring down costs and allow comparison shopping," said Rep. Brubaker (R-Randolph).
“As policymakers, our goal was to increase investment in North Carolina and give consumers more choices and innovative new services,” said Rep. Adams (D-Guilford). “Today’s announcement makes that goal a reality for Triad residents.”
“Cable has been the only game in town for too long, and we’re excited to change that today in the Triad area,” said Alison Hall, vice president and general manager, AT&T Carolinas. “We know customers want a better choice to break free from cable, and AT&T U-verse is the answer. We’ll continue to make U-verse TV even better for customers with regular upgrades and new cool applications that enhance your TV experience.”
