NEW YORK (AP) — AT&T says it's deploying a new, but long-promised, technology to reach more homes with its U-Verse service, which provides cable TV and higher Internet speeds.

The Dallas-based phone company says it's deploying "pair bonding" — effectively sending the signal over two phone lines at once — to extend the reach of U-Verse another 1,000 to 2,000 feet from neighborhood nodes.

AT&T Inc. isn't saying exactly how many additional homes now have access to U-Verse. The company says pair bonding will help it go from being accessible to about 24 million homes now to 30 million at the end of 2011.
