The service was available to Bartlesville and Stillwater last year.
Jerry Bayless, AT&T external affairs said rolling out in Ponca City was part of their plan.
“Ponca City will be the first community outside the metropolitan areas in 2014 to get the new services," Bayless said.
U-verse can be bought as a bundle with the TV, Internet and phone or separately.
According to the AT&T website TV starts at $29, Internet starts at $30 and to bundle TV, Internet and phone it starts at $79.
