AT&T U-Verse Voice Rolled Out on TV's Anniversary

By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor

AT&T (News - Alert) has announced the availability of AT&T U-verse Voice in parts of Miami-Dade and Broward counties "marking," company officials say, "the one-year anniversary of the launch of AT&T U-verse TV."

The U-verse Voice product is designed to bring together home phone, wireless, broadband and TV services on one bill. U-verse TV and Internet services are now available to more than one million living units across the state.

U-verse Voice is a managed IP-based service delivered over AT&T's network, giving customers "a single, combined voice mailbox for AT&T U-verse Voice and AT&T wireless messages," as well as access to "U-verse Central," described as "an online portal to manage call preferences and settings from any PC."

There's also an online voice mailbox, the ability to view call logs from a PC or recent incoming calls on a TV screen, the ability to initiate a call from a PC or TV using Click to Call and other features, including 911 service.

Rich Guidotti, vice president and general manager, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets South Florida, said that "just like U-verse TV has changed the way people watch television, U-verse Voice will change the way people use their home phone."

U-verse TV customers can choose from two U-verse Voice calling plans: U-verse Voice Unlimited includes unlimited nationwide minutes to any location in the U.S., Canada or U.S. territories for $30 a month, and U-verse Voice 250 includes 250 Call Anywhere minutes to any location in the U.S. or U.S. territories for $25 a month.

AT&T officials say U-verse has introduced free enhancements, such as the ability to watch and play back recordings from a single DVR on any connected TV in the house with Total Home DVR, and a Total Home DVR feature allowing them to schedule and delete recordings from any U-verse receiver in the home.

Earlier this week, TMC reported that AT&T announced a bundled offer targeted at small businesses that includes wireless, wired and high speed Internet services, starting at less than $100 a month. AT&T called it a "demonstration of its ongoing commitment to providing affordable products for small businesses in a tough economy."

The "All for Less" bundle is now available to qualifying small business customers, or one to four lines in a single location, across AT&T's 22-state footprint.

The services, which come on one consolidated bill, include wireless from AT&T where customers will be able to conduct business wirelessly with 450 minutes each month per wireless device on a 3G network, available in nearly 350 U.S. metropolitan areas.
