This will not only benefit home services, it will enhance the way we communicate throughout this region of our city. The demand for speed and connectivity is continuously increasing, and today’s announcement reflects our commitment to support the ongoing public and private investment in the area. Thank you to AT&T for investing in technology that will keep us up to speed all over the city.”
“The City of Dallas is grateful that AT&T not only recognized the demand for faster internet speeds in Southern Dallas, but also quickly worked to accelerate the availability to more homes, apartments and small businesses,” said Tiffinni A. Young, Dallas City Councilwoman, District 7. “Our community looks forward to a future with increased access and incredibly fast internet speeds, while creating new opportunities for economic development, engagement and education.”
“We’ve moved quickly to bring our ultra-fast Internet connection over the AT&T GigaPower network to more locations throughout Southern Dallas to connect more customers to the content that matters most, as only an integrated provider can deliver,” said Hardmon Williams III, vice president and general manager, AT&T North Texas. “The fiber-enhanced speeds will open up new possibilities for technology innovators and businesses, as well as consumers who want faster speeds for surfing, shopping, gaming, social networking, and more.”
GrowSouth is a comprehensive strategy to build a foundation for sustainable growth in Southern Dallas. The plan started with ten goals that focused on people, investments and locations to drive economic growth. Southern Dallas represents new potential sales tax revenue from business and development that will strengthen the city’s tax base and help fund vital basics that are the foundation of the city of Dallas. When it comes to growth potential, Southern Dallas has the land, the workforce, and the will. However, it is missing one major component, investment capital. Each neighborhood and citizen is the backbone to this growth. Find a way to get involved by visiting www.dallasgrowsouth.com

About City of Dallas GrowSouth
GrowSouth is a comprehensive strategy to build a foundation for sustainable growth, and outline five key projects that we believe can jumpstart growth in key areas in the next three years. The City of Dallas has presented a work plan that supports what they can accomplish as part of “GrowSouth” including short term and long term infrastructure and capital improvements that will support and enhance growth in Southern Dallas. Southern Dallas represents new potential sales tax revenue from business and development that will strengthen our tax base and help fund vital basics that are the foundation of our city. Today, 55% of our citizens live North of the Trinity, yet that part of our City provides 85% of our tax base or conversely, Southern Dallas is home to 45% of our population yet provides only 15% of our tax base. Southern Dallas is our greatest single opportunity for growth in North Texas, comprising the greatest inventory of land available in Dallas— encompassing 185 square miles, roughly 54 percent of the city’s area. That is enough space to fit the entire cities of Boston, Miami, Pittsburgh and San Francisco combined. When it comes to growth potential Southern Dallas has the land, the workforce, and the will. However, it is missing one major component, investment capital.
