The Hattiesburg City Council voted unanimously to begin a contract with AT&T. The new provider will offer AT&T UVERSE to residents, offering cable and Internet.
"Something that these citizens of Hattiesburg have been looking for, for a long time," says Mayor Johnny DuPree. He believes it's time for resident to have more options. "They've not been satisfied with the cable service that we receive in Hattiesburg."
Currently the only cable provider is Hattiesburg is Comcast. Now with AT&T moving in, DuPree says competition between the companies could be good for residents. "Hopefully which will improve service and improve quality of what they receive," says DuPree.
We compared prices of Comcast basic cable and Internet package to AT&T's, both start off at $49.99.
