U-verse with AT&T GigaPower Launches in Research Triangle and Winston-Salem

RALEIGH, NC —Qualifying residents and small businesses in Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Winston-Salem can now access to U-verse with AT&T GigaPower. The selection of these cities for the all-fiber AT&T GigaPower network stemmed from an agreement with the North Carolina Next Generation Network (NCNGN) initiative. NCNGN is comprised of six municipalities, four leading universities and local business leaders working to encourage development of high-speed Internet networks across the state.

The AT&T GigaPower network provides customers access to the fastest Internet available from AT&T, featuring speeds up to 1 gigabit per second. Whether customers are connecting to the cloud, videoconferencing, online gaming or other services, ultra-fast Internet access will improve the customer experience.

U-verse with AT&T GigaPower customers will also have access to cutting-edge TV services. This includes the ability to watch and record five simultaneous HD streams and AT&T's largest storage capacity DVR capable of storing up to 900 hours of SD or 330 hours of HD programming. Customers can also watch more than 100 live channels in and out of home, watch video on-demand TV shows and schedule DVR recordings, on more than 30 smartphones and tablets through the AT&T U-verse Spp.

Strengthening the Region's Competitive Technology Edge
"The Research Triangle has a long history as a technology innovator," said Tracy Futhey, vice president for information technology at Duke University and chair of the North Carolina Next Generation Network Steering Committee. "Maintaining that pace-setting role requires a continual evolution of our tech ecosystem. We're thrilled AT&T is investing in a gigabit network in our region. These kinds of networks will help to strengthen our region's competitive edge, ensuring that we continue to lead in creating an environment that inspires technological innovation."

Consumers in eligible areas have several choices of Internet speeds and bundling offers on the AT&T GigaPower network, with speeds up to 100 Mbps starting as low as $90 per month. Residential customers can upgrade their speed to up to 1Gbps, add TV or add a home phone for an additional $30 a month per service.

"We're proud to launch in these cities as the first locations where we will offer ultra-high speeds to local consumers and employers in North Carolina," said Venessa Harrison, president AT&T North Carolina. "U-verse with AT&T GigaPower will help encourage economic development in the area by facilitating a new wave of innovation through enhanced opportunities for education, health, research and small business growth."

AT&T has also announced plans to launch AT&T GigaPower in additional areas and expand the availability of the network in Charlotte, Durham and Greensboro. As part of the agreement with the NCNGN, Durham residents and small businesses will receive AT&T U-verse Internet connectivity and U-verse TV services for the first time. Specific timing of availability for these markets will be announced at a later date.
