U-verse with AT&T GigaPower to Launch in Dallas, Fort Worth

DALLAS — This summer AT&T will begin lighting up Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding cities with U-verse with AT&T GigaPower. The AT&T GigaPower network will provide services offered over an all-fiber network featuring symmetrical upload and download broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps, the fastest broadband speeds available in and around the metroplex.

In the Dallas area, the initial AT&T GigaPower network deployment will launch in Highland Park and University Park with speed capability of up to 1 Gbps.

Other parts of Dallas and surrounding cities will launch this summer at up to 100 Mbps, and customers will be eligible to upgrade to speeds of up to 1 Gbps by the end of 2014. Surrounding cities launching at up to 100 Mbps will include Allen, Fairview, Irving, and McKinney.

Initial Deployment of 100 Mbps
In Fort Worth, initial deployment will launch at up to 100 Mbps, and customers will be eligible to upgrade to speeds of up to 1 Gbps by the end of 2014. Additional cities around Fort Worth where up to 100 Mbps will also launch this summer include Arlington, Euless, Granbury, North Richland Hills, Weatherford, and Willow Park.

U-verse Customers on the AT&T GigaPower network will have access to cutting-edge TV services that offer the ability to watch and record five simultaneous HD streams, with our largest storage capacity DVR with a one terabyte hard drive.

And this is only the beginning. AT&T will continue lighting up new areas and expanding the AT&T GigaPower network to more residents and small businesses across North Texas through the end of 2014 and beyond.

"We're proud to be the first to offer ultra high-speeds to local consumers and employers in Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding cities," said Dave Nichols, president, AT&T Texas. "As we roll out these ultra-fast speeds beginning this summer, the AT&T GigaPower network 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."

The AT&T GigaPower network launched to thousands of households in Austin, Texas, and surrounding communities in December 2013. In January AT&T announced it will expand the fiber network to double the households in the Austin area this year as a result of high demand that has exceeded expectations. The AT&T GigaPower network will also expand to parts of North Carolina. In April, AT&T announced it's considering 100 U.S. cities and municipalities for the ultra-fast fiber network.

Additionally, AT&T has committed that when its proposed acquisition of DIRECTV is complete, the company will expand AT&T GigaPower to an additional 2 million customer locations. All of these 2 million locations for GigaPower are over and above what the company has announced previously.
