In a recent press release, communication giant AT&T (News - Alert) announced that its U-Verse TV service has achieved a rare landmark in South Florida by grabbing as many as 100,000 TV customers.


In the release, AT&T mentioned that more than 100,000 TV customers in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties have subscribed to the company’s U-verse TV services, first launched in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale market in July 2008. The service debuted in Key West in May 2010, followed by a June-launch in Key Largo.


The company continued to expand its U-Verse line up including AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice in a number of South Florida cities, giving residents a new choice for their television and communications services.


All the AT&T U-verse services are delivered over AT&T's advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network and offers an excellent alternative to cable. AT&T U-verse services promise to offer an altogether better TV experience with a set of better features and apps as well as a better DVR.


Under AT&T U-verse service, the customers can enjoy the convenience of paying just one bill for their TV, broadband, home phone and AT&T wireless services. AT&T U-verse TV also 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.


To Carlos Blanco, vice president and general manager, AT&T Mobility & Consumer Markets for South Florida, South Florida customers, who were desperate to break free from cable TV, found out a better choice in AT&T U-verse. He assured the customers that AT&T will continue to make U-verse even better by introducing new cool applications on a regular basis so that customers can enjoy an enhanced TV experience.


“Florida has set the standard for building jobs and investment based on a consumer-focused environment. 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,” AT&T Florida president Marshall Criser, III commented in a statement.


In a separate press release, AT&T announced the launch of the "Music For You" concert series. The company said that the summer program is designed to bring more value exclusively to AT&T customers, especially the youth demographic, nationwide.
