Speeds up to 1 Gbps Available on the Fastest 100 Percent Fiber Network in the Metroplex

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.

Customers on the AT&T GigaPower network can access the fastest upload and download speeds available from AT&T.  Whether they are connecting to the cloud for videoconferencing, online gaming or other services, ultra-fast Internet access will improve the customer experience.

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 company is also introducing a $100 wireless bill credit promotion for AT&T consumer wireless subscribers when they purchase U-verse with AT&T GigaPower. Plus, U-verse with AT&T GigaPower residential subscribers can get an additional $100 wireless bill credit for each new qualifying line of AT&T wireless service.****

The AT&T GigaPower network offers:

  • 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.
  • The fastest Internet speeds available to consumers in and around the metroplex.  With gigabit speeds, you can download a TV show in less than three seconds and an HD online movie in less than 36 seconds.*****
  • Access to cutting-edge TV services that include an enhanced DVR with 1 terabyte of hard drive storage and can record five shows at the same time.

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.
