AT&T takes U-verse into Austin, Tx condo community

Condominium residents that live in Austin, Texas' 2nd Street District, the city's newest shopping and cultural center, will enhance their living experience further as AT&T (NYSE: T) brings its U-verse TV and data services to more than 150 condominium units within W Austin Hotel Residences.  

While the RBOC continues to expand its single family home U-verse footprint, this latest agreement with CJUF II Stratus Block 21 LLC is yet another large-scale deployment conducted through AT&T's Connected Communities program, a marketing initiative between AT&T and regional builders and property owners to provide telecom services to residents and homebuyers.

"Through the AT&T Connected Communities deal, we're adding even more value to these properties for the owners, and we're really setting a precedent for technological progress in the area," said Beau Armstrong, chief executive officer of Stratus Properties, the project developer in a release.

The latest deal with Austin is one of many new Connected Communities projects AT&T has won recently. In addition to Austin, AT&T crafted similar deals with the University of California and Dunwoody, Ga.   

While AT&T continues to see obvious declines in traditional landline voice and DSL subscribership, it is seeing continued growth with its U-verse IPTV and VDSL2-based broadband services with the addition of 209,000 new U-Verse TV subscribers during the second quarter.
