AT&T Is Aggressively Expanding Its Fiber Network

Telephone Terminals in Disarray on Phone PoleBroadband Internet is quickly becoming a market to watch. After years of stagnation, we are finally seeing new options and services. With new fiber providers rolling out and 5G on the horizon, things are heating up for older competitors. Now it seems that AT&T is investing in its infrastructure to head off new competition.

Part of this investment starts with AT&T rolling out its fiber-powered GigaPower network to 17 more metro markets including Birmingham, Alabama; Charleston and Colombia, South Carolina; Chicago; Greensboro, North Carolina; Huntsville and Mobile, Alabama; Houston; Indianapolis; Kansas City, Missouri; Little Rock, Arkansas; Los Angeles (Jurupa, Los Angeles, and Orange County), San Diego and Sacramento, California; Memphis, Tennessee; New Orleans; and St. Louis.

AT&T is not stopping there. It also announced that it plans to roll out fiber-powered GigaPower to more than 51 new markets. AT&T also set the goal of running fiber to the pole (i.e., getting fiber to the street if not each house by 2019). The goal is for AT&T to offer 100 Mbps or 1 Gbps to even more subscribers.

Hopefully AT&T’s investment in its infrastructure will push others to also invest. Often as one pushes new ground it forces other services to also upgrade or face being left behind.
