AT&T U-verse TV

AT&T U-verse TV is Advanced TV

AT&T U-verse TV utilizes fiber optic technology to deliver high definition television. Fiber optic cable is similar to coaxial cable, transmitting data through a pipe. The difference is that U-verse TV is transmitted by fiber optic light bursts rather than electrical signals. Fiber optic light bursts travel long distances, with increased speed and bandwidth, allowing multiple transmissions to occur at the same time with less signal interference so that you can enjoy phenomenal picture and sound quality. Older services, including coaxial cable, simply cannot compete with faster, more reliable fiber optic technology offered by AT&T U-verse.
