The AT&T GigaPower network will continue expanding to new areas, reaching more residents and small businesses across North Texas through the end of 2014 and beyond.

Consumers in eligible areas have several choices of Internet speeds and bundling offers on the AT&T GigaPower network.

AT&T invested more than $6.55 billion in its Texas wireless and wireline networks from 2011 through 2013. AT&T has proudly served Texas for 134 years and employs more than 35,500 people across the state.

The AT&T GigaPower network launched in Austin, Texas, in December 2013, and high demand exceeded expectations.  As a result AT&T announced a major initiative in April to expand its ultra-fast AT&T GigaPower fiber network to up to 100 cities and municipalities across 25 markets nationwide.  Today's announcement means U-verse with AT&T GigaPower is now available to tens of thousands of customers across the Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth markets.  So far, AT&T has committed to deliver the AT&T GigaPower network to Charlotte, Greensboro, Houston, Miami, Nashville, Overland Park, Kan., Raleigh-Durham, San Antonio and Winston-Salem. 

Additionally, AT&T committed that upon approval of its proposed acquisition of DIRECTV, the company will expand the AT&T GigaPower network to an additional 2 million customer locations. All of these 2 million locations are over and above what the company announced in April.
