Thank you for the post.

At only 21% penetration, 1 out of 5 customers that could have Uverse IPTV service does, alot of room for growth.
That is a potential of 27 million customers without Project VIP even being completed.

A check on AT&T jobs shows all markets hiring additional Uverse techs for installation and maintenance.
Additionally commitment to hire 5000 veterans has been doubled to 10, 0000.
