AT&T U-Verse Fiber Optic Internet
American Telephone and Telegraph Corporation (AT&T) is a communications company with an extremely long history. Its beginnings go back to 1875 and the development of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell. AT&T went on to become the parent company of Bell System and remained so for many years. In 1984 the company split into eight companies and AT&T focused on offering telecommunications services and equipment.
This was a new era in telecommunication and AT&T took the initiative and started to deliver IP-solutions and is now starting to focus on the latest protocol - VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol.
In recent years the importance of the Internet has led to a change in how AT&T does its business. In fact it has become one of the major players in fiber optics - the way that high speed broadband is delivered to homes and businesses around the country. They have invested in the infrastructure to build the fiber network and to take the system to next level.
In the year 2000 AT&T restructured once again taking the new emerging market into account. They split into AT&T Wireless, which is primarily focused on mobile communication, AT&T Broadband, which would focus on Internet networks and AT&T itself. A combination of regulations coming from government and increasing competition meant that the company went through a turbulent time following this restructure. A merger with SBC Communications followed which took the company into a new era and produced the industry's premier communications and networking company which can deliver solutions both in the US and around the world.
For customers wanting a fiber optic broadband solution for their home or business, AT&T is one of the largest providers in the country and offers a range of suitable products. Personal customers have a choice of taking individual products or one of the many bundle packages available. For those wishing to get high speed broadband, one of the packages which utilizes the fiber optic network is certainly the best.
AT&T U-verse is a fiber optic package which offers digital television options and other bundles. Customers can get TV only or TV, Internet and Phone. Generally the more items are included in the bundle the cheaper the overall price will be. U-verse is the only television service in the country which is solely IP based and does not rely on cable.
Small businesses can also take advantage of the Internet services offered by AT&T. The company offers a number of packages to suit the smallest to the largest sized businesses and will also give back-up and support including web-hosting.
The company now describes themselves as having the world's most advanced networks with almost perfect reliability. They offer a largest choice of IP-based communications in the world and have a reputation for customer support and security features on their networks.
