The article presents the authors view on the significance of the coaxial creation of AT&T in the U.S. According to the author, the firm's U-verse will depend on the optical fiber's latticework and twisted-pair phone lines in order to pass the television signals to its clients. However, the firm shuns to find the significant conduit that could make its creation more effective and useful.
