AUGUSTA, Ga., March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Greater Augusta area residents now have a new choice for their television and high speed Internet services. AT&T* is launching U-verse® TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice in the area.

The new services are part of AT&T's Project Velocity IP (VIP). The initiative significantly expands and enhances AT&T's IP and mobile data networks. AT&T U-verse will continue rolling out to additional local cities and neighborhoods in upcoming months.

"The great thing about U-verse is that it makes TV, Internet and voice services work together in harmony," said Keith Holmes, AT&T vice president and general manager – Georgia/South Carolina. "We're honored to bring our innovative services to Augusta customers. Local residents have asked for more TV service choices and today we're delivering." Customers signing up for U-verse from today through April 14 may qualify for a $100 reward card; bundle offers are also available.

Project VIP will extend the AT&T U-verse IP network to about 57 million customer locations in its service areas by the end of 2015. AT&T also plans to upgrade U-verse High Speed Internet to speeds of up to 100 Mbps over the next several years. That's fast enough to download two songs or 6,000 email messages in a second.

AT&T U-verse TV is 100 percent digital and uses AT&T's advanced network. This means Augusta area customers will have the freedom to watch hit TV shows from almost anywhere** – at home or on the go. AT&T U-verse was named the 2014 Video Company of the Year by Frost & Sullivan. The award is based on excellence in customer value, innovation and growth. Since 2009, AT&T U-verse added more TV subscribers in total than any of the major TV providers reported***.

More Choice, More Features
IP-based TV service has many advantages over older, cable-based technologies. It has the ability to integrate services and adapt to consumer demands. AT&T U-verse offers a fully-integrated Wireless Receiver****. Customers can watch TV in almost any room in the home, even where there's no TV outlet.

Where AT&T U-verse services are available, U-verse TV customers can enjoy many features and applications. They include the ability to watch hit TV shows on qualifying mobile devices and online; manage DVR recordings remotely; the ability to choose and watch four of your favorite channels at once with My Multiview*****; an extensive HD channel****** and On Demand lineup; and the ability to access popular social networks on your TV screen.

AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet offers many speed options and includes wireless home networking capability for all Internet customers. When customers sign up for U-verse High Speed Internet, they have access to thousands of AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at no extra charge.*******

AT&T U-verse Voice is an advanced digital home phone service delivered over AT&T's IP network. Customers enjoy great sound quality and clarity, and unmatched calling features that work with U-verse TV. When bundling their services, U-verse customers can choose the services in their bundle and bundle U-verse Voice service with TV, Internet and AT&T wireless services for more savings.
