AT&T U-verse Arrives in Midland and Odessa
Midland and Odessa Customers Get New TV Choice That Ranks Highest in Customer Satisfaction in J.D. Power and Associates Study
Midland and Odessa residents now have a new — and better — choice for their television and communications services powered by the most advanced technology. AT&T* today announced the launch of AT&T U-verseSM services in parts of Midland and Odessa, including AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice.
AT&T U-verse TV, High Speed Internet and Voice 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 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 StudySM.
“Today’s expansion of AT&T U-verse reflects our commitment to make the investments necessary to bring consumers across Midland and Odessa a new era of true video competition,” said Don Cain, AT&T Texas president. “We are thrilled to offer this innovative video choice to Midland and Odessa customers. Local residents have asked for more choices in television service and today we’re delivering.”
Texas was the first state where AT&T U-verse services were deployed, thanks to progressive legislation passed in September 2005 by the Texas Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Perry. This legislation provides an environment that encourages new video providers, such as AT&T, to invest in Texas to compete against the incumbent cable providers and build the advanced broadband networks that will create jobs and fuel economic growth.
“Senate Bill 5 was aimed at increasing investment in Texas and giving consumers more choices and innovative new services. Today’s announcement brings that goal to fruition for Midland and Odessa residents,” said state Rep. Tom Craddick.
“Cable has been the only game in town for too long, and we’re excited to change that today in Midland and Odessa,” said Adrian Quintanilla, North Texas general manager, AT&T Consumer Markets. “We know Midland and Odessa customers want a better choice to break free from cable, and AT&T U-verse is the answer. And we’re taking it even further by making your services work together and offering cool features you can’t get anywhere else.”
