After North Carolina, AT&T lists 21 more cities for GigaPower Fiber-optic Internet


AT&T has announced its plans to expand the GigaPower fiber-optic Internet service to 21 major cities across United States other than the six major cities of North Carolina that was announced in early-April 2014.

Now with the latest roadmap, AT&T eyes on beating Google’s Gigabit and other cable internet providers to stay ahead in the race. If the largest U.S. telecommunication firm managed to deliver this proposal, then the residents and businesses of these cities could access the Internet in 1 gigabit per second speed, which is 100 times faster than the normal internet speed in these cities.

However, AT&T will have to apply for the approval from local authorities in some of the cities and municipals, prior providing the 1 gigabit per second GigaPower internet.

AT&T moving aggressively to increase its GigaPower Internet service’s reach as earlier this month, it announced the similar plans to provide the fastest Internet service to North Carolina’s 6 cities. Google and other major Internet service providers are also spreading their wings by delivering the fiber-optic Internet connection with similar speed. Last year, AT&T announced the GigaPower Internet service in Texas and Austin, where Google is also actively working on extending its reach.

Wherever AT&T provides the fastest fiber-optic internet, it also delivers its U-verse digital TV with high speed internet and voice service. Below are the proposed cities, where the AT&T GigaPower service could be launched soon.

As of now, the carrier hasn’t disclosed the number of subscribers of GigaPower in figures, we could expect the exact subscribers numbers in its quarterly financial results after providing the service in major cities across U.S.

AT&T’s GigaPower plans ranges from $70 per month to $150 when TV and phone are included, while Google’s Gigabit Internet service is being offered for $70 per month with an initial construction fee of $30 and the combined Internet and TV service is available for $120 per month with additional local taxes in available areas.

Mountain View-based Google started its Gigabit fiber-optic journey from Kansas city, Missouri, 2 years ago and now it’s expanding the reach to Austin, Utah and Provo, while Raleigh, Charlotte and Durham in North Carolina will get the access to the high-speed Google Gigabit service soon.
