We successfully launched the first AT&T GigaPower metro in Austin, Texas 2 years ago. That led to a major expansion in multiple U.S. metros beginning in 2014. In 2015 we marked a major milestone deploying the AT&T GigaPower network to more than 1 million locations, and we expect to more than double availability by the end of 2016.
AT&T GigaPower is available in 20 of the nation’s largest metros areas, and we’ve announced plans to expand our ultra-fast Internet service in parts of 36 additional metro areas - which will total at least 56 metros served.
We plan to continue to roll out our fastest Internet services over a 100% fiber network to reach more than 14 million residential and commercial locations.
AT&T has invested more than $2 billion in its Los Angeles area wireless and wireline networks from 2012 through 2014, driving a wide range of upgrades to reliability, coverage, speed and performance for residents and business customers.
