More Than 260,000 Jacksonville Living Units Now Benefit From Video Choice With AT&T U-verse TV
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Jacksonville residents now have a new choice for their television and communications services. AT&T* today announced U-verse services are now available to more than 260,000 living units across the Jacksonville market. AT&T U-verse first launched in Jacksonville in November 2008.
AT&T U-verse services, which are all delivered over AT&T’s advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network, offer a new alternative to cable with a better DVR, better features and apps, and a better TV experience. AT&T U-verse brings together your TV, broadband, home phone and AT&T wireless services — all on one bill — with unique features that provide a new level of integration, convenience and control. Now AT&T U-verse TV ranks “Highest in Residential Television Service Satisfaction in the South Region Three Years in a Row,” according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2008-2010 Residential Television Service Satisfaction Studies(SM).
“Florida has set the standard for building jobs and investment based on a consumer-focused environment,” said Marshall Criser, lll, AT&T Florida president. “Just recently, our elected leaders reinforced that commitment by passing the Regulatory Reform Act sponsored by Senator David Simmons, Representative Mike Horner and primary co-sponsor Representative Alan Williams. Through their insight and the leadership of Governor Rick Scott, Senate President Mike Haridopolos and House Speaker Dean Cannon, Florida has one of the most competitive economies for technology investment. As customer demand for services like U-verse grows, all Floridians benefit from the choices available to them and the workforce that is needed to meet expanding demand.”
The Consumer Choice Act of 2007 (HB 529) sponsored by Rep. Trey Traviesa and Sen. Mike Bennett, was passed overwhelmingly by the Florida Legislature and was signed by Gov. Charlie Crist on May 18, 2007. This provides an environment that encourages new video providers, such as AT&T, to invest in Florida to compete against incumbent cable providers.
“Cable has been the only game in town for too long, and we’re excited to see a change in that in Jacksonville,” said Rich Guidotti, Greater Florida vice president and general manager, AT&T. “We know our 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.”
