ATT Ups IPTV Spending

ATT will increase its spending on its U-verse IPTV service to between $6.0 billion and $6.5 billion through the end of 2008. This is up from $5.1 billion. It expects to have 18 million homes passed by the service at that time, up from 3 million at the end of 2006.

This is not going easily for ATT. Frankly, it is difficult to see how it can pass 15 million additional homes with this service by the end of next year. This task is certainly easier than a FTTP approach since all that is required is installing remote access systems, but it is a huge acceleration in the pace of this project.
