New U-verse Internet Customers Can Take Their Pick: A Free Xbox 360, SONOS PLAY:3, Kindle Fire or Nexus 7 Tablet

New U-verse Internet customers choosing a bundle of services can take their pick of a fun, free device

Dallas, Texas, March 18, 2013

AT&T* now offers new U-verse® High Speed Internet customers their choice of a free Wi-Fi enabled entertainment device – Xbox 360®, SONOS PLAY:3, Kindle Fire or a Nexus 7 Tablet – when they choose a package of U-verse services.

Customers signing up for U-verse High Speed Internet qualify for a free device when they add either U-verse TV or Voice service to the new Internet service.  The free device, valued at up to $350**, provides even more value to popular AT&T U-verse bundles. Customers also receive access to the AT&T Wi-Fi network at no extra charge. And those who bundle U-verse TV and Internet benefit from more flexible connectivity with a free wireless gateway. In addition to state of the art connectivity and entertainment, U-verse packages offer customers significant savings.

“Customers tell us they enjoy access to their in-home Wi-Fi network and the freedom to use more than 32,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots across the country, which is why we’re building new bundle offers around our broadband services,” said Mel Coker, chief marketing officer, AT&T Home Solutions. “We know when customers bundle U-verse Internet, TV and voice services, they have higher customer satisfaction and engagement. Customers tell us that packing the services gives them even more reasons for love U-verse.

The offer is the latest example of AT&T responding to customer feedback. In 2012, U-verse introduced new bundle offers that deliver significant savings over 24 months. Triple- and quad-play bundle offers are popular among existing customers. In the fourth quarter of 2012, 90 percent of U-verse customers bundled U-verse TV and Internet, and 70 percent of customers had triple- or quad-play***.

AT&T added 609,000 U-verse High Speed Internet subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2012 to reach a total of 7.7 U-verse High Speed Internet million customers. Fifty-five percent of U-verse broadband subscribers have a plan delivering speeds up to 12 Mbps or higher.
