More than 10 million customers now subscribe to AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet service – a major achievement in the company’s ongoing effort to bring IP broadband access to more people.
The growth is due in part to AT&T’s Project Velocity IP — its multi-billion dollar, three-year investment plan to improve its wireless and wireline IP networks. Since announcing Project VIP one year ago, the company has added about 2.5 million broadband customer locations. The plan calls for expanding IP broadband to reach about 57 million customer locations by the end of 2015.
The plan also calls for Internet speed upgrades. Earlier this year, AT&T rolled out U-verse High Speed Internet Power with up to 45 Mbps download speeds in 79 markets. And the company plans to raise speeds up to 75 and 100 Mbps in the future.
