AT&T announces Uverse to roll-out on Northshore October 5th
This includes Slidell, Mandeville and Covington. Southshore - Orleans and Jefferson Parishes roll-out will be announced as soon as franchise agreements are finished. I'll be on the phone to place my order early Monday morning!

Viewers in North Shore parishes will be the first in area to get U-verse, the wired AT&T television service currently available in 105 markets in 19 states.


AT&T will officially announce the local U-verse rollout Friday (October 2).


Customers in Mandeville, Covington and Slidell can begin placing installation orders Monday (October 5).


Franchise agreements are not yet in place for Jefferson and Orleans parishes.


“We have every intention of bringing it to all the areas of metro New Orleans we can,” said Sue Sperry, an AT&T spokeswoman.



U-Verse is AT&T’s cable-TV competition, using existing telephone lines to deliver broadcast and cable networks – as well as accompanying services like digital video recording, video on demand and high-definition networks.

So this is why COX has been running soooo many commercials the past couple of weeks...

Glad to see AT&T offering something other than Direct TV.

That system looks a lot like the the LUS TV system.

Just ordered it tonight. Will get my confirmation email and install date tomorrow. $144/mo for unlimited phone, 6Mbps internet (can get up to 18Mbps), and 200+ TV channels - way more than what I was paying $184/mo to Charter for. Plus a $200 rebate for switching and the first 6 months of internet are free!

It's been hooked up almost two weeks now, and, so far, I'm totally satisfied.
All the services - phone, internet, and TV come into your house over the old POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) copper wire - in my case a buried shielded CAT 3 wire - to a central control unit called a RG - Residential Gateway. The AT&T tech can use your existing in-home telephone wire or cable TV coax to run from the outside box to the RG inside. From there, they can use the existing cable TV coax to feed the TV signal to your Televisions (up to 8 sets - though, right now, it's limited to 2 HD sets and 2 SD sets simultaneously). Each TV will need a converter box - $7 for each box after the first one. The main TV box has a DVR recorder built-in - no charge for this box. Any TV in your house can watch recordings from the DVR. You can use your own router for your in-home (wired or wireless) PC network, or use any of the 4 ports on the RG for a wired network or the (built-in) wireless network. The RG has a RG11 plug to feed the telephone wiring inside your house for the VOIP telephone system. The phone service includes unlimited long distance - US, Canada, and Mexico - and caller ID, voice mail, call waiting ID, etc.

My monthly bill is $144 for 6Mbps down/1Mbps up internet (which I'm getting based on speedtest.net), 200+ (U200 plan) TV channels (no premium channels), and the phone service. Here, I got a $250 rebate for signing up, 6 months free internet (@$37 a month), and a $60 rebate for signing up for Auto-pay - they automatically debit my checking account for the monthly charge. This is $40 a month cheaper than what I was paying my cable company for the same services, not including the $310 in rebates, or the 6 months free internet service.

I "would think" that AT&T's service will be better than my cable company's service during power outages. My cable service went down - phone/internet/TV - every time we had a local power outage. AT&T phone and DSL internet never went off at my brother's house out in the country during Gustav when I was out of service for almost 6 days on cable. AT&T phone was back up here at my house 3 days after Katrina when my entire town was without power for over 2 weeks.

Get it if it's available in your neighborhood!

But, you're not on fixed income, and you D/L lot's of stuff. 6Mbps is plenty fast enough for my needs. YMMV!

Gulf Shores, Foley? I'd imagine that Fairhope/Daphne/Spanish Fort either have it now, or will in the near future. Migrate your place in Fort Morgan to a weekend camp and move into the 'burbs.
