AT&T and Cary Agree to Deploy Up to 1 Gigabit Network

  • AT&T
  • North Carolina Next Generation Network (NCNGN)
CARY, NC – Town officials ratified an agreement with AT&T to bring ultra-fast Internet access to residents and businesses in Cary. AT&T will provide U-verse with GigaPower over a fiber network with speeds capable of up to 1 Gbps.

The agreement stemmed from a North Carolina Next Generation Network (NCNGN) initiative. The NCNGN is comprised of six cities, four leading universities, and local business leaders working to encourage development of high-speed broadband networks in the state.

The plan outlines potential fiber deployments to deliver ultra-fast broadband to parts of Cary. AT&T U-verse with GigaPower will also deliver advanced TV services and Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than what is available in Cary today.

AT&T Fiber Investments in North Carolina
This investment by AT&T is in addition to its ongoing investment to expand its fiber network to tens of thousands of North Carolina residents and businesses over the next two years. In addition, similar AT&T U-verse with GigaPower plans, related to the NCNGN initiative, are currently approved in Durham, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem and pending ratification in two other North Carolina areas – Carrboro and Chapel Hill.

AT&T invested more than $1.6 billion in its North Carolina wireless and wireline networks between 2011 and 2013. AT&T has served the state of North Carolina for 133 years and employs more than 6,800 people across the state.
