AT&T and Winston-Salem Agree to Deploy Up to 1 Gigabit Network

  • AT&T
WINSTON-SALEM, NC – City officials ratified an agreement with AT&T to bring ultra-fast Internet access to residents and businesses in Winston-Salem. 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 Winston-Salem. 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 Winston-Salem today.

“We’re thrilled that Winston-Salem will be in the next round of cities for AT&T’s rollout of its U-verse with GigaPower,” said Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines. “Our City has a well-deserved reputation as a technology and medical leader and a network of this magnitude will help take the work underway in both those areas to new levels of innovation and achievement.”

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 pending ratification in five other North Carolina areas – Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh.
