AT&T's U-Verse hits 18K subs

AT&T announced that its U-Verse IPTV user base has swelled to 18,000 subscribers. The service provider noted that it plans to launch U-Verse in Los Angeles in the coming weeks with additional launches to continue throughout the year. AT&T's average install rate is about 2,000 installations a week, which is five times greater than it was in January.

AT&T's group president of regional wireline operations, Ralph de la Vega said, "Consumers are clearly hungry for an alternative to the cable companies, and... we offer more High Definition channels than local cable companies in the markets we serve, the ability to record up to four programs at once, and the ability to set DVR recordings remotely using the AT&T Yahoo! portal or, soon, a mobile device."
