AT&T to Deliver U-verse with AT&T GigaPower in Charlotte

  • AT&T
CHARLOTTE, NC — AT&T confirmed it will expand its ultra-fast AT&T GigaPower network to the city of Charlotte. The all-fiber network will provide services featuring symmetrical upload and download broadband speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second, and AT&T’s most advanced TV services to consumers and businesses.

AT&T is deploying additional fiber and electronics to the existing network in Charlotte to meet the growing demand for ultra-fast broadband. The network enhancements will enable customers to have access to AT&T’s fastest Internet speeds available to consumers.

Local residents and small business customers on the AT&T GigaPower network will also experience cutting-edge TV services with the ability to watch and record five simultaneous HD streams, and its largest capacity DVR at one terabyte of storage.

“We are very pleased AT&T will be deploying its ultra-high speed fiber network here in Charlotte,” said Mayor Dan Clodfelter. “AT&T’s networks helped us become a hub for international business and banking. This new network will move us to the next level in building a vibrant, world-class and globally-connected city. We look forward to working with AT&T as they bring this exciting new service to our community.”

Encouraging Innovation and Job Creation

“This announcement by AT&T is excellent news for Charlotte,” said Michael D. Barnes, Mayor Pro Tem. “The advanced capabilities this network will deliver will positively impact all sectors of our community, encouraging innovation and job creation by entrepreneurs, while enabling teachers to access additional resources and utilize new techniques to improve K-12 education. As a city, we are committed to working with all companies who want to invest in deploying advanced infrastructure to serve our residents and businesses.”

Specific locations of availability and pricing for the Charlotte market will be announced at a later date.

On April 21, 2014, AT&T announced a major initiative to expand its ultra-fast AT&T GigaPower fiber network to up to 100 candidate cities and municipalities across 25 markets nationwide. As part of that announcement, AT&T said it is also considering other North Carolina areas – Apex, Garner, Gastonia, Greensboro, Huntersville, and Morrisville as candidate municipalities for the service.
