AT&T expands fiber service in eight cities

AT&T announced plans to expand its gigabit Internet service to businesses and households in eight markets in the west, midwest, and south. Businesses in San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami will soon have the option of Internet speeds of 1 Gbps through AT&T’s U-verse by GigaPower service. Residential customers in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Kansas City, and Oklahoma City will soon have the option as well.

"We'll continue to expand our 100 percent fiber AT&T GigaPower network to additional locations," AT&T said in a statement. "We're planning to triple availability by the end of 2016."

AT&T is in the midst of a significant fiber expansion. It announced late last year that it was bringing its U-verse with GigaPower service to 38 new metro areas. And the company announced this year that it may expand its fiber-to-the-premises build beyond its previously expected 14 million sites as it sees new opportunities to bundle broadband with video service now that AT&T has integrated DirecTV.
