AT&T plans to launch ultra-fast internet service in parts of the Macon area. At launch, we will offer a 1 gigabit connection on our 100% fiber network powered by AT&T Fiber to area homes, apartments and small business locations.
We’ve already launched our ultra-fast internet service in parts of 52 of the nation’s largest metro areas. We plan to reach at least 75 metros with our fastest internet service.
Today, we market a 1 gigabit connection on our 100% fiber network to more than 4.6 million locations nationwide. In 2017, we plan to have added 2 million locations, and we plan to reach at least 12.5 million locations by mid-2019.
"We are proud to add Macon to our list of cities where we plan to bring our fastest internet speed plans available,” said Terry Smith, AT&T Regional Director of External Affairs for Middle Georgia. “AT&T Fiber enables access to enriched experiences as our customers increasingly interact with their world in more data-intensive ways. At AT&T, we are committed to innovation and providing cutting-edge technologies that enhance the many ways our customers live, work and play.”
Four years ago, we announced our intent to build a 1 gigabit fiber network, beginning in Austin, Texas. Today, we have the largest fiber network within our 21-state footprint.
Internet customers on the 100% fiber network have access to our latest Wi-Fi technology. They can enjoy our best in-home experience with faster Wi-Fi speeds and broad coverage to seamlessly connect all their devices.
