SPOTLIGHT: AT&T aims biggest TV launch at Chicago area


After a long battle to launch U-Verse TV services in the Chicago suburbs, AT&T is now beginning to roll out U-Verse in 175 suburbs in what we Chicago city folk call the collar counties. It's the telco largest TV roll out in the country thus far, and before AT&T gained a statewide franchise last October, the effort was fought by several suburban communities who didn't want their neighborhoods marred by fiber-to-the-node cabinets.

Too bad U-Verse isn't available in the Chicago city limits--I wouldn't mind giving it a try. Oh, well, there's no room out back in the alley for loop gear anyway.
