AT&T GigaPower Availability
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. We expect to more than double availability by the end of 2016.
Speeds up to 1 gigabit per second are available to homes, apartments and small businesses in 20 of the nation’s largest metros areas. 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.
