AT&T has begun deployment of a 100 per cent fibre Internet broadband network in Austin, Texas that will deliver speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second. AT&T plans to begin delivering AT&T U-verse with GigaPower, the city’s fastest Internet available to consumers, along with more advanced TV services and features, in December.
Dave Nichols, President AT&T Texas, commented. “With our all-fibre U-verse services, we are building the foundation for a new wave of innovation for Austin’s consumers, businesses, and civic and educational institutions. It’s about engaging the full community and empowering the city and its people with all that technology can offer us. This investment will help attract new business and new jobs to Austin.”
AT&T’s U-verse with GigaPower service will initially reach tens of thousands of customer locations throughout Austin and the surrounding areas this year, with additional local expansion planned in 2014 to reach even more neighborhoods and businesses.
