Anderson County and City of Clinton customers get new TV service that ranks highest in customer satisfaction in J.D. Power and Associates study.

ATT_LogoAnderson County residents now have a new choice for their television and communications services powered by the most advanced technology. AT&T* today announced the launch of AT&T U-verse® services in parts of Anderson County and the City of Clinton, and soon, to the City of Oak Ridge, including AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice. The introduction of these new services is part of an ongoing expansion of AT&T U-verse availability. U-verse first launched in Tennessee in December 2008.

“This is great news,” said State Representative Jim Hackworth. “The introduction of U-verse services is timely, especially when so many cities and towns are competing for new technologies.”

AT&T U-verse services, which are all delivered over AT&T’s advanced Internet Protocol (IP) network, offer a new alternative to cable and an unmatched experience for customers. AT&T U-verse brings together your TV, broadband, home phone and AT&T wireless services ― all on one bill ― with unique features that provide a new level of integration, convenience and control. AT&T U-verse TV ranked “Highest in Residential Television Service Satisfaction in the South Region Two Years in a Row,” according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 and 2009 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction StudiesSM.

“The introduction of U-verse today gives Anderson County new innovations for enjoying TV and Internet access,” said Anderson County Mayor Rex Lynch. “We are pleased that Tennessee policymakers encouraged this type of investment throughout the state and gave consumers more choices and numerous TV benefits.”

AT&T is introducing U-verse services in Tennessee thanks to The Competitive Cable and Video Services Act of 2008, HB 1421. The law, signed by Gov. Bredesen in May of 2008, provides an environment that encourages new video providers, such as AT&T to invest in Tennessee to compete against incumbent cable providers. On the first day that this new law became effective, AT&T Tennessee filed its initial application for a state-issued certificate of franchise authority to offer video services in communities across the state.

“We know that competition builds markets, fosters innovation, and leads to new products and services,” said Parker Hardy, President of the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce. “The Tennessee General Assembly recognized that as well.”

“We should recognize the great work of our legislative leaders like Senator McNally and Representative Hackworth, whose public policy efforts encourage innovation and new technology throughout Tennessee,” said Alan Hill, regional director of external affairs, AT&T Tennessee. “In so doing, this is truly benefiting consumers. Our Tennessee policymakers have worked to improve the lives of everyday families and provide support to the businesses in our community.”
