AT&T says it's seen strong growth in its U-verse TV deployment in South Florida, topping 100,000 subscribers in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties.
The telco first rolled out the IPTV service in Miami in June 2008, then Key West in May 2010 and Key Largo in June 2010.
The growth is notable in light of the depressed economic climate in Florida, where unemployment in parts of the state continues to be above the national average, and home construction continues to lag as foreclosures flood the market.
"Florida has one of the most competitive economies for technology investment," said Marshall Criser, III, AT&T Florida president. "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."
