DALLAS, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine downloading 25 songs in the blink of an eye.  It's now a reality for parts of Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding cities.*  U-verse with AT&T** GigaPower is here.

Offering the fastest broadband speeds available to consumers in and around the metroplex, the all-fiber AT&T GigaPower network will deliver upload and download speeds up to 1 gigabit per second.

"We're proud to introduce U-verse with AT&T GigaPower in the Dallas-Fort Worth area today," says Hardmon Williams III, AT&T's vice president and general manager for North Texas.  "DFW residents and small businesses will be thrilled with the speeds of this new technology, which will make their lives easier and enhance their Internet experience.  Work is done more efficiently, family entertainment comes faster, and sharing news and video with friends is effortless.  Welcome to the AT&T GigaPower network."

In the Dallas area, speeds up to 1 Gbps on the AT&T GigaPower network are now available to residents and small businesses in Highland Park and University Park.  Also starting today, speeds up to 100 Mbps are available in parts of Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding cities – Allen, Arlington, Euless, Fairview, Granbury, Irving, McKinney, North Richland Hills, Weatherford and Willow Park. Customers in these areas can upgrade to speeds up to 1 Gbps by the end of 2014.

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. Speeds up to 100 Mbps start as low as $90 per month, and speeds up to 1 Gbps are as low as $120 per month, for residential customers.*** More information can be found at att.com/gigapower.

  • The ability to watch more than 100 live channels in and out of home, watch video on-demand TV shows and schedule DVR recordings, on more than 30 smartphones and tablets.

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.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base.
