AT&T U-verse Arrives in Corpus Christi


Corpus Christi Customers Get New TV Service That Ranks Highest in Customer Satisfaction in J.D. Power and Associates Study

Corpus Christi, Texas.- Corpus Christi 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-verseSM services in parts of Corpus Christi beginning Monday, June 29.

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 StudySM.

“Today’s launch of AT&T U-verse reflects our commitment to make the investments necessary to bring consumers across Corpus Christi a new era of true video competition,” said Don Cain, president, AT&T Texas. “We are thrilled to offer this innovative video choice to Corpus Christi 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.

“Cable has been the only game in town for too long, and we’re excited to change that today in Corpus Christi,” said Chris Penrose, vice president and general manager, AT&T South Texas. “We know Corpus Christi 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.”

“As policymakers, our goal was to increase investment in Texas and give consumers more choices and innovative new services,” said state Rep. Solomon Ortiz, Jr. “Today’s announcement brings that goal to fruition for Corpus Christi residents.”
