Starting today, AT&T’s triple-play U-verse services are available in parts of the Memphis, Tenn., metropolitan area.

"Today's launch of AT&T U-verse reflects our commitment to make the significant investments to bring Tennessee consumers a new era of true video competition," said Gregg Morton, president of AT&T Tennessee.

AT&T is introducing U-verse services in Tennessee thanks to The Competitive Cable and Video Services Act of 2008, HB 1421, signed into law by Gov. Bredesen last year.

AT&T U-verse launched across the greater Nashville area in December. AT&T uses its Internet Protocol-based network to deliver its services to residents and businesses.

AT&T’s U-verse video services include whole-home DVR capabilities and 110 HD channels, as well as the ability to program shows remotely via Internet-connected smartphones.

AT&T’s data service has a maximum downstream speed of up to 18 Mbps and a maximum upstream speed of up to 1.5 Mbps. All AT&T U-verse high-speed Internet packages include wireless home or office networking at no extra cost. Subscribers also receive virtually unlimited e-mail storage, anti-virus and anti-spam software, and access to AT&T’s Wi-Fi network, with free unlimited connectivity at more than 17,000 hotspot locations nationwide.
