Louisville 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 the Louisville area, including AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice. The services will be available for order beginning Monday, Aug. 31.
AT&T U-verse services, which are all delivered over AT&T's advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network, offer a new alternative to cable and an unmatched experience for customers. AT&T U-verse brings together your U-verse TV, U-verse Internet, U-verse Voice and AT&T wireless services -- all on one bill -- with unique features that provide a new level of integration, convenience and control.
"Today's launch of AT&T U-verse reflects our commitment to make the significant investments to bring Kentucky consumers a new era of true video competition," said Mary Pat Regan, president, AT&T Kentucky. "For the first time in many years, consumers in Louisville will have the choice they've been waiting for."
"As we celebrate today's launch, we need to remember all of the forward thinking policymakers who crafted, and have continued to modernize Kentucky's laws to promote investment and new technologies like U-verse TV. They could not have envisioned all of the wonderful communications products and services that have transformed the way we live and work today, but they understood that competition is good for consumers and that a vibrant marketplace, free from burdensome and unnecessary government interference, is important to the Commonwealth," said Regan.
"This investment by AT&T is great news for Louisville, as it brings exciting new technology and new jobs to our community," said Congressman John Yarmuth. "I applaud the men and women of AT&T for their commitment to our hometown and am honored to help them celebrate this occasion."
More Choice, Advanced Features
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.

"Cable has been the only game in town for too long, and we're excited to change that today in Louisville," said Bryan Klamer, general manager-Home Solutions for AT&T Kentucky. "Quite simply, U-verse is cooler than cable. We know Louisville customers want a better choice to break free from cable, and AT&T U-verse is the answer. Using our IP platform, we can push updates seamlessly to our customers overnight and part of that U-verse experience is turning on your TV and finding something new to enjoy - at no extra charge."
