"Cupertino is proud to be the first city announced in California set to receive the ultra-high-speed AT&T GigaPower network," said Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong.  "Cupertino is leading the way in creating an environment that fosters innovation, and the deployment of ultra-high-speed broadband service will further support innovation in our community, spur our local businesses, and result in even greater economic development in our city.  We are very pleased to work with AT&T to offer this unprecedented service to our residents and small businesses."

"AT&T has been bringing the latest, most advanced technology to our customers for well over a century, and today we continue that tradition by bringing AT&T GigaPower – the fastest broadband network available – to Cupertino," said Ken McNeely, President of AT&T California.  "The ultra-fast speeds of the AT&T GigaPower network open up a whole new world of possibilities for our customers in Cupertino.  AT&T's network already serves as a backbone for innovation in California, and AT&T GigaPower represents a huge leap forward.  From our wireless network to our broadband network, we are proud to empower entrepreneurs, developers, artists, and creative thinkers of every stripe to build and shape the future of California."

Specific locations of availability and pricing for the Cupertino market will be announced at a later date.

On April 21, 2014, AT&T announced a major initiative to expand its ultra-fast fiber-based AT&T GigaPower network to up to 100 candidate cities and municipalities across the nation. As part of that announcement, AT&T said it is also considering other San Jose areas – Campbell, Mountain View and San Jose as candidate municipalities for the service.
