AUSTIN, TEXAS - AT&T announced that it has completed its Austin launch of U-verse with GigaPower, a super-fast, all-fiber Internet network for as low as $70 a month.

With initial speeds of up to 300 Mbps, AT&T’s U-verse with GigaPower offers upstream speeds 20 times faster than what’s currently available and enhanced TV to tens of thousands of Austinites. AT&T plans to continue the rollout to new areas of the city in 2014 and beyond. U-verse with GigaPower customers who also select U-verse TV service will get U-verse’s largest storage capacity DVR.

According to Dahna Hull, AT&T’s vice president and general manager for Austin, “With U-verse with GigaPower, our customers can download movies and music and navigate, post and interact on the web faster than ever before, and have one of the best TV experiences around. It’s reliable, crazy fast and priced to attract more and more people to give us a try.”

AT&T plans to expand availability of U-verse with GigaPower beyond parts of Austin area neighborhoods like French Place, Mueller, Zilker and Onion Creek to even more residents and small businesses in 2014. Expansion plans will, in part, be influenced by the number of Austinites voting for their neighborhood at www.att.com/gigapower.

AT&T U-verse with GigaPower offers Austin residents:

  • Fastest Internet speeds available to consumers in Austin, with plans to reach speeds up to 1 Gbps in 2014. With Gigabit speeds, you can download 25 songs in one second.

  • Access to cutting-edge TV services that include our 1 terabyte of storage DVR – record up to 330 hours of high-definition TV – and the flexibility to watch and record five shows at the same time.

  • In-home, watch the Longhorn Network live on your device or tablet.

  • Ability to schedule DVR recordings and watch both live and video on-demand TV shows, on more than 30 smartphones and tablets.


AT&T is currently offering two U-verse with GigaPower Internet plans - premier and standard - at different price points, both with speeds up to 300 Mbps. Customers who sign up for 300 Mbps service will be upgraded to speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second when available in 2014, at no extra cost. And U-verse with GigaPower customers that are also AT&T wireless customers will enjoy 50 GB of free cloud storage.

When announcing plans in October to roll-out U-verse with GigaPower to consumers and small businesses, AT&T said it would collaborate with Austin leaders to discuss how the new all-fiber platform could further the citywide technology ecosystem and build on the progressive nature of the community. In the coming weeks, the company will share plans of an initiative designed to drive new innovation and solve every day challenges, connecting Austin in new ways based on community input.
