AT&T's U-verse TV, Internet and voice services are available in parts of the Jackson, Miss., area, where the telco will take on incumbent cable provider Comcast.

AT&T touts its TV service as providing more than 110 HD channels, along with various customizable interactive features such as on-screen weather and news. The telco also noted that it has taken the top spot in the South region on J.D. Power and Associates' residential television service survey for two years in a row.

"Today's launch of AT&T U-verse reflects our commitment to make the investments necessary to start bringing consumers in Jackson a new era of true video competition," AT&T Mississippi president Mayo Flynt said in a statement.

In the region AT&T also recently launched U-verse services in Baton Rouge, La. -- squaring off against Cox Communications -- as well as southeastern Louisana, where Charter Communications is the primary cable operator.
