AT&T has finished testing the voice component of the U-verse service, finally adding the third element of the video/data/voice triple-play that U-verse was designed to deliver.
AT&T will start by expanding the availability of VoIP among U-verse customers in Detroit, the test bed for U-verse VoIP. The service will continue to expand to more local customers and additional markets in 2008.
AT&T is offering two calling plans: U-verse Voice Unlimited includes unlimited local and nationwide minutes to any location in the U.S., Canada or U.S. territories for $40 per month; and U-verse Voice 1000 includes 1,000 minutes to any location in the U.S. or U.S. territories for $30 per month. A second line can be added for $20 per month.
Features include an online management portal; messaging that combines AT&T wireless and U-verse Voice into a single voice mailbox; click to call; an online address book; Locate Me, which allows incoming calls to ring up to four numbers at the same time; as well as call screening, call blocking, do not disturb and privacy settings.
