AT&T Brings GigaPower to Austin Student Housing

AUSTIN – AT&T and The Villas announced an agreement to offer AT&T U-verse with GigaPower over a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network to The Villas on 26th just across The Drag from The University of Texas.

Set to open August 1, The Villas on 26th will offer AT&T's U-verse with GigaPower to residents with speeds capable of downloading an HD movie in less than two minutes, cutting-edge TV services and U-verse Voice on an advanced, all-fiber network.

Delivering a Technology-first Living Experience
"The Villas on 26th are breaking new ground by being the first student housing development at UT to offer ultra high-tech amenities like built-in home automation and in-wall touch screens in all apartments. Much of the Villas will even have private, furnished home theaters in each individual apartment, said Brad Zucker, developer of The Villas. "Offering AT&T's latest innovation, U-verse with GigaPower, continues to set us apart from other communities in delivering a technology-first living experience."

AT&T launched U-verse with GigaPower in Austin in December 2013 with speeds of up to 300 Mbps – and plans to increase speeds to up to 1 Gbps this year. U-verse with GigaPower customers also have access to cutting-edge TV services that enable viewers to watch and record more shows simultaneously with our largest storage capacity DVR.

"Technology fuels Austin. And Austinites consume data at rates 15 to 20 percent higher than the average AT&T U-verse user, which is why we decided to roll this out first in Austin," said Dave Nichols, president, AT&T Texas. "With U-verse with GigaPower, The Villas on 26th residents can download their favorite TV show in under nine seconds and enjoy the best online and TV experience in the capital city."

Sales of the ultra-fast broadband service have exceeded expectations and are the reason AT&T is expanding service to twice as many Austin households in 2014.
