AT&T has announced that it has launched its GigaPower broadband service in Fresno, California, and also expanded coverage in parts Los Angeles and San Diego, as well as Chicago, Miami and Oklahoma. Jeni Bell, vice president and general manager, Northern California and Northern Nevada at AT&T, commented: ‘AT&T is committed to extending GigaPower throughout California, because our customers are communicating and seeking entertainment in increasingly more data-intensive ways’.
The rollout means that AT&T’s GigaPower network is currently available in over 1.6 million locations across 25 of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas. Going forward, the telco plans to extend the availability of its 1Gbps-capable network to selected parts of 31 more areas, giving it coverage of at least 56 metros in total. Ultimately, AT&T aims to reach more than 14 million residential and commercial locations with fibre.
