AT&T to Deploy Up to 1 Gigabit Network in Raleigh, NC

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

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 Raleigh. 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 Raleigh today.

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 and Winston-Salem, and pending ratification in three other North Carolina areas – Carrboro, Cary, and Chapel Hill.
