AT&T to Expand its Fiber Residential Footprint to 38 More Metros

AT&T unveiled plans to extend its  fiber residential network, which offers Internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps, to an additional 38 metro areas across the U.S..  This rollout will double the reach of the AT&T GigaPower service, which currently passes over 1 million locations, bringing the total number of metros served to 56.

AT&T also announced the launch of its ultra-fast Internet service in parts of 2 of these metros – Los Angeles and West Palm Beach.  AT&T GigaPower is now available in 20 of the nation’s largest metros.  

“Customer demand for AT&T GigaPower and sales have exceeded expectations since launching speeds up to 1 gigabit per second in Austin,” said Brad Bentley, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, AT&T Entertainment Group. “The faster speeds offered through AT&T GigaPower keep consumers and small businesses connected as they are accessing more content on more devices. This improves a customer’s experience when they are connecting to the cloud, hosting a videoconference, streaming videos and music, playing online games and more.”
