AT&T Plans to Reach 38 More Metros with Gigabit Internet Speeds

LOS ANGELES — AT&T announced it is planning to expand the availability of ultra-fast speeds through AT&T GigaPower to homes, apartments and small businesses in parts of 38 additional metros across the United States, which will total at least 56 metros served.With the launch of its ultra-fast Internet service in parts of two of these metros today – Los Angeles and West Palm Beach – AT&T GigaPower is now available in 20 of the nation’s largest metros.

Nearly two years ago, AT&T launched its first AT&T GigaPower metro in Austin, Texas. This launch led to a major expansion in multiple metros beginning in 2014. Recently the company marked a major milestone deploying the AT&T GigaPower network to more than 1 million locations, and expects to more than double availability by the end of 2016.

The company plans to continue to roll out its fastest Internet services over a 100 percent fiber network with the goal of reaching more than 14 million residential and commercial locations.

Improved Customer Experience
“Customer demand for AT&T GigaPower and sales have exceeded expectations since launching speeds up to 1 Gbps in Austin,” said Brad Bentley, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, AT&T Entertainment Group. “The faster speeds offered through AT&T GigaPower keep consumers and small businesses connected as they are accessing more content on more devices. This improves a customer’s experience when they are connecting to the cloud, hosting a videoconference, streaming videos and music, playing online games and more.”
