AT&T (NYSE: T) U-verse is staking a claim to be "the fastest growing TV service in the country," which, to a cable industry apparently focused on broadband customers, might be a dubious claim. Still, this could be where all those basic video subscribers might have gone after they left the cable fold.
"U-verse TV had its best quarter of the year during the fourth quarter of 2010, adding 246,000 subscribers to reach nearly 3 million U-Verse TV customers in service," the carrier reported, claiming that the success is "driven by an all-Internet Protocol (IP) service."
