AT&T; U-verse is available in select states across the nation. The service employs fiber optic technology and computer networking to provide subscribers with rich entertainment experiences via television, high-speed Internet and digital home phone service. On June 6, 2011, AT&T; announced that it had reached a milestone with more than 100,000 U-verse TV subscriptions in the South Florida counties of Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe.
As of the time of publication, AT&T; provides its U-verse service in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. The provider’s goal is to reach between 55 percent and 60 percent of the homes in its service regions and is on track to surpass its goal of providing 30 million homes with U-verse service by the end of 2011. Because of competition from cable, it does not appear that AT&T; plans to expand U-verse service much further than the areas in which it currently has a strong presence.
AT&T; U-verse TV
AT&T; U-verse TV offers digital picture, video on demand, more than 160 high-definition channels and multiview capabilities that allow you to watch four channels on one television screen simultaneously. The accompanying digital video recorder can record four shows simultaneously and customers can activate it from a web browser and smartphone. You can bundle all your U-verse services along with your wireless service on one monthly bill. AT&T; provides a 30-day money back guarantee on U-verse services and does not require you to sign a long-term contract.

Additional features include AT&T; Wi-Fi access, AT&T; Messenger, the AT&T; Internet Security Suite, photo storage with Flickr and unlimited dial-up access across the nation when away from home. AT&T;’s U-verse service uses one connection to deliver TV, high-speed Internet and digital phone services.
AT&T; U-verse Voice
AT&T; U-verse offers subscribers two voice calling plans: AT&T; U-verse Voice Unlimited and AT&T; U-verse Voice 250. The unlimited plan provides unlimited local and long distance within the United States, its territories and Canada. The U-verse Voice 250 plan gives subscribers 250 minutes per month with additional minutes billed at 5 cents per minute. Both plans include a wealth of calling features such as call blocking, call forwarding, call waiting and caller ID. Both plans include enhanced 911, which allows an emergency service dispatcher to see your address and phone number when you dial 911.
