U-verse with AT&T Gigapower Launches in Greensboro, Durham

DURHAM, NC —U-verse with AT&T Gigapower launched to residential and small business customers in Greensboro and Durham.

Greensboro — Customers in parts of Greensboro and surrounding communities have a new choice for ultra-fast Internet access from AT&T delivering the speed customers need to power all of their devices and connect them to the content that matters most – on Greensboro’s first residential network to feature speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

“Greensboro’s history is full of examples of how our city has grown and prospered as a result of new technologies,” said Mayor Nancy Vaughan. “Today’s launch of AT&T GigaPower, which will connect people and opportunities around the world at gigabit speed, is great news. I am particularly thrilled that this launch comes less than a year after the initial announcement that AT&T GigaPower was coming to Greensboro. I look forward to seeing how this network will energize the future for our community.”

Durham — U-verse with AT&T GigaPower has also launched to residential and small business locations in parts of Durham, as part of an agreement with the North Carolina Next Generation Network (NCNGN) initiative.

“AT&T has played a critical role in bringing high-speed connectivity to the Research Triangle,” said Tracy Futhey, vice president for Information Technology at Duke University and chair of the North Carolina Next Generation Network Steering Committee. “We look forward to continuing to work with AT&T to bring new entertainment and connectivity options to area residents and businesses.” The launch of AT&T GigaPower in Durham marks a significant milestone in delivering service to all six NCNGN communities. The service previously launched in Cary, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Winston-Salem.

The success of the first AT&T GigaPower market in Austin led to a major expansion beginning in 2014. AT&T plans to expand its 100 percent fiber network in up to 25 markets. U-verse with AT&T GigaPower has officially launched in 15 markets, and plans have been announced to launch AT&T GigaPower in parts of the Jacksonville, St. Louis and San Antonio markets.

AT&T Extends U-verse with AT&T Gigapower to More Multifamily Properties
Apartment and condo residents in Nashville could soon enjoy the benefits of ultra-fast Internet service, with speeds up to 1 Gbps. AT&T is working with property owners, management groups and developers to reach agreements to deliver U-verse with AT&T GigaPower to additional new and existing multifamily living units.

U-verse with AT&T GigaPower is now available to residents in multiple properties in the Nashville area. Some of these properties include:

Clarksville — Addison at Rossview, Sonoma Ridge at Fairview and Stone Gate Condos
Murfreesboro — Richland Falls, Panther Creek Parc and 3343 Memorial
Nashville — The Dallas at Elliston Place, The Flats at Taylor Place, Lofts at the Reserve, Park at Melrose Heights, Pine Street Flats and Lofts at State
Smyrna — Almaville Farms at Seven Oaks.

“We want Nashvillians to harness the power of ultra-fast Internet access in everything they do, from creating good music to pioneering healthcare innovations,” said Joelle Phillips, president, AT&T Tennessee. We have been able to deploy network enhancements fast – in part because of smart, pro-investment policies, championed at the state level by Governor Haslam and legislative leaders like Speaker Harwell and Lt. Governor Ramsey – as well as streamlined local permitting processes that Mayor Dean and our Metro Council members have embraced. Expanding access to AT&T GigaPower to multi-family properties will further help to speed that deployment to more Nashvillians.”

AT&T will initially focus the expansion of the AT&T GigaPower fiber network to multifamily living units located in some of the fastest-growing rental markets across the nation. In addition to Nashville, these markets include areas where U-verse with AT&T GigaPower is available or where plans to launch the service have been announced – Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Chicago, Cupertino, Dallas, Fort Worth, Greensboro, Houston, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Miami, Raleigh-Durham, St. Louis, San Antonio and Winston-Salem.

“We want to bring ultra-fast Internet speeds and access to content in real-time to more of our customers,” said Joni Arison, AT&T senior vice president of AT&T Emerging Markets. “We’re working with property owners, management groups, homeowner associations and developers to expand the availability of high-speed Internet over our AT&T GigaPower network. This will make properties more attractive by offering Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second so residents can quickly connect to the cloud, telecommute more easily, video chat in real-time and stream the latest entertainment.”

Reaching out to Property Owners
The AT&T Connected Communities (ACC) team is working with property owners and managers who are interested in bringing this service to their location. To connect current and potential residents to their content now and in the future, the ACC team is able to plan and place a fiber-optic network in three easy steps:

  1. Evaluation: Nominate your property for fiber consideration by visiting www.att.com/fiberproperties.

  2. Design: AT&T engineers will develop a fiber overbuild design of the existing telecommunications network to be approved by the selected property’s stakeholders.

  3. Deploy: Once an agreement is reached, AT&T technicians will carefully install the AT&T GigaPower network to minimize disruption to the property and residents.
