Greenville 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(SM) services in parts of Greenville and Asheville beginning Monday, August 10.

AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice are delivered over AT&T's advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network, and offer a new alternative to cable and an unmatched experience for customers. AT&T U-verse brings together your TV, broadband, home phone and wireless services -- all on one bill -- with unique features that provide a new level of integration, convenience and control. AT&T U-verse TV ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction in the South Region," according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction Study(SM).

"Today's launch of AT&T U-verse reflects our commitment to make the investments necessary to bring consumers in the Greenville area a new era of true video competition," said Pamela Lackey, President, AT&T South Carolina. "We are thrilled to offer this innovative video choice to customers. Local residents have asked for more choices in television service and today we're delivering."

The Competitive Cable Services Act, guided through the General Assembly by Representatives Harry Cato and Bill Sandifer in 2006, was progressive legislation that streamlined the process for entering the video marketplace. Due to the vision of state legislators, as well as local officials who must grant consent, video providers, such as AT&T, now have an incentive to invest in South Carolina to compete against the incumbent cable providers and build the advanced broadband networks that will create jobs and fuel economic growth.

"Cable has been the only game in town for too long, and we're excited to change that today in Greenville," said Alison Hall, vice president and general manager, AT&T Carolinas. "We know Greenville customers want a better choice to break free from cable, and AT&T U-verse is the answer. And we'll continue to make U-verse TV even better for customers with regular upgrades and new cool applications that enhance your TV experience."

"Greenville residents understand and appreciate strong, vibrant competition and have been looking forward to it coming to the video market," said Greenville Mayor Knox White. "This investment by AT&T is exciting because it represents a strong commitment to the people and economy of this area. We are appreciative that AT&T is continuing to help us prepare for future growth."

AT&T U-verse TV is the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider, making AT&T U-verse one of the most dynamic and application-rich services available today, with advanced capabilities that customers don't get from other providers.
