AT&T Unveils Next-Generation U-verse Services in Reno and Sparks

Published: 16 June, 2008
Reno and Sparks-area residents now have a new -- and better -- choice for their television and communications services. AT&T Inc. today announced the launch of the company's integrated suite of AT&T U-verse(SM) services, including AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice. 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. AT&T U-verse services are all delivered over AT&T's advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network. Customers can currently order AT&T U-verse services in parts of Reno and Sparks. AT&T will make U-verse services available to more homes throughout the area on an ongoing basis.

"With AT&T U-verse, we're going beyond your basic bundles to make services work together in new and exciting ways -- all around you," said Melba Muscarolas, AT&T vice president and general manager for AT&T West. "AT&T U-verse is going to be a game-changer for Reno and Sparks. Not only are customers getting a new choice to break away from cable, they're getting more from their services."

AT&T is the only national service provider to offer a 100 percent IP-based television (IPTV) service. IP technology helps make AT&T U-verse TV one of the most dynamic and feature-rich services available today, with advanced capabilities customers don't get from other providers and access to more than 40 High Definition (HD) channels.

AT&T U-verse offers multiple combinations of TV, Internet and Voice packages to customize your experience. U-verse TV offers five programming packages -- U100, U200, the popular U300 and U400 packages, plus U-family, a market-leading family-friendly programming option. Current AT&T U-verse TV pricing starts at $44 a month, depending on the selected programming package (taxes, fees and other monthly charges apply).

Professional installation of all U-verse services is included for new U-verse TV customers, and you also get a 30-day money-back guarantee. Customers who order a qualifying programming package by phone through Sept. 20, 2008, are eligible to choose a free month of the U200, U300 or U400 package or a $50 cash-back redemption by gift check. Customers who order a qualifying TV package online will receive a free month of the TV package. Additional cash-back offers are available to qualifying customers who bundle Internet or AT&T U-verse Voice service.

AT&T is introducing U-verse services in Nevada as a result of the passage of Assembly Bill 526 and the leadership from Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley, Senate Majority Leader Bill Raggio, Assembly Commerce and Labor Chairman and Assembly Majority Leader John Ocegeura, and Senate Commerce and Labor Chairman Randolph Townsend. Assembly Bill 526 signed by Gov. Jim Gibbons provides an environment that encourages new video providers, such as AT&T, to invest in Nevada to compete against incumbent cable providers.
