AT&T to build FTTP network to deliver U-verse services near Houston

June 26, 2006

AT&T announced an agreement June 21 with General Growth Properties to build a fiber-to-the-premises network to deliver the AT&T U-verse suite of services, which includes integrated digital TV, high-speed Internet and voice services, to a 20,000-home master-planned community near Houston.

The agreement, the company’s largest such contract to date, will enable AT&T to make Internet Protocol-based communications and entertainment services available to the estimated 65,000 residents who will move into Bridgeland, a 10,000-acre residential development currently under construction.

The Bridgeland agreement is one of hundreds of agreements AT&T has completed for fiber-based developments. These agreements represent more than 270,000 homes in newly planned communities across the country.
