AT&T lights up U-verse in Montgomery, Ala.

AT&T (NYSE: T) is bringing its U-verse data, voice and video product suite to the Greater Montgomery, Ala., area, a deployment made possible by its Project Velocity IP (VIP) initiative.

The telco said that it will continue to roll out U-verse service to new local cities and neighborhoods in upcoming months.

"By focusing on building a strong economy with great infrastructure, we have created an environment where businesses want to invest in our city," said Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange in a release. "This announcement will provide Montgomery residents with another choice among technology providers."

Alabama has been a key buildout target for AT&T. Between 2011 and 2013 AT&T previously said it invested over $1.35 billion in the state's local wireline and wireless networks.

In 2013 alone, AT&T said it made 957 network upgrades in Alabama, including the addition of wired network capacity and new broadband connections.

Besides Alabama, AT&T recently announced similar network upgrade investments in California, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.
