announces it now serves 1 million AT&T U-verse Voice digital home phone lines. The milestone comes two years after AT&T introduced the advanced VoIP service, which is now available to millions of homes across 22 states.
AT&T U-verse Voice is a next-generation digital voice service delivered over the AT&T U-verse IP network. More than 67 percent of new U-verse TV customers bundle U-verse Voice service.
AT&T added 248,000 U-verse TV subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2009, totaling 2.1 million U-verse TV subscribers nationwide and adding 1 million U-verse TV customers in the last year alone.
Since the commercial launch of U-verse Voice in January 2008, AT&T has continued to enhance the service and expand availability to provide more choices for consumers. U-verse Voice is now available in all 120 markets that offer U-verse TV, giving consumers another option for their home phone services.
U-verse customers benefit from flexible triple- and quad-play bundles. Customers can choose from multiple combinations of U-verse TV, U-verse Voice, U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T wireless plans that offer significant savings and integrated features. As of the end of 2009, more than 90 percent of U-verse TV customers bundle High Speed Internet, and more than 75 percent of U-verse TV customers have a triple- or quad-play.
U-verse Voice customers also enjoy unmatched calling features that provide deeper integration across their bundle. For example, customers have a single, combined voice mailbox for convenient access to their AT&T U-verse Voice and AT&T wireless messages. They can also view their call logs on their PC or their TV screen, and initiate a call from their PC or TV. Last fall, AT&T started a market-by-market rollout of Caller ID on TV, which lets U-verse TV and Voice customers view caller ID and voicemail notifications on their TV screen.
