AT&T U-verse News Round-Up

I’ve missed covering some of the AT&T U-verse news of late, so here’s a quick round-up of everything U-verse that’s hit the wires in the last couple of weeks. AT&T tends to get lost in the shadow of Verizon and its cable brethren, but the telco has been plugging along quite nicely. Two million subscribers, two billion in revenue, and that’s just the beginning.

This week AT&T officially hit the two million mark for U-verse customers, almost exactly one year after it hit the one million mark in December of 2008. At the end of Q3, the company said it was also on track to bring in two billion in U-verse revenue this year. As it gains subscribers and revenue, AT&T is also beefing up the U-verse service. The company announced this week that it is launching a 24-Mbps tier, starting with a trial in three markets – Austin, San Antonio, and St. Louis. It is also pushing a monthly tech support offering by throwing in free Wi-Fi network set-up to subscribers who sign up for the $15/month service.

Meanwhile, there are several hints that AT&T is looking to expand the TV portion of the U-verse service as well. Multichannel News uncovered last month that AT&T is looking to hire someone to develop original content for TV, online, and mobile platforms. And Reuters reported yesterday that a telco exec says AT&T is “very close to offering services that allow consumers to move media content between their televisions, cellphones and computers.” Sounds like the U-verse version of TV Everywhere.
