Just when you thought it couldn’t get any faster…
It just did!
AT&T announced yesterday it is planning to expand the availability of ultra-fast speeds through AT&T GigaPowerSM to homes, apartments and small businesses in parts of 38 additional metros across the United States – which will total at least 56 metros served.
With the launch of the ultra-fast Internet service in parts of 2 of these metros today – Los Angeles and West Palm Beach – AT&T GigaPower is now available in 20 of the nation’s largest metros…
Although it won’t be coming to Arizona, there is always the expanding potential…
Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second over the AT&T GigaPower network let you instantly access the latest online movies, music, games and more…
AT&T GigaPower can also improve your experience when connecting to your favorite content and gives you the speed to power all of your devices.
Nearly 2 years ago, AT&T successfully launched the first AT&T GigaPower metro in Austin, Texas. and the launch led to a major expansion in multiple metros beginning in 2014…
Recently the company marked a major milestone deploying the AT&T GigaPower network to more than 1 million locations, and they expect to more than double availability by the end of 2016 (hint, hint come to Arizona!)
They will continue to roll out our fastest Internet services over a 100% fiber network to reach more than 14 million residential and commercial locations.
“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.”
