imgres-4AT&T Tuesday announced it has started to roll out its high speed broadband network in Austin, which can deliver speeds up to one Gigabit per second.
The service includes AT&T U-verse with GigaPowerSM, Internet services and more TV services and features in December.
“Austin embodies innovation and social consciousness, and is the heart of a vibrant, ever-evolving tech culture and entrepreneurial spirit,” Dave Nichols, President of AT&T Texas said in a news release. “With our all-fiber U-verse services, we are building the foundation for a new wave of innovation for Austin’s consumers, businesses, and civic and educational institutions. It’s about engaging the full community and empowering the city and its people with all that technology can offer us. This investment will help attract new business and new jobs to Austin.”
AT&T is encouraging consumers and business owners to vote to help AT&T identify which neighborhoods get the high speed network in the future. The company plans to further expand its network next year.
“This is an exciting time to live and work in Austin. We currently sit at the cutting edge of technology and this deployment will allow our businesses and residents to work, educate, create, invest, and build at faster speeds,” Mike Rollins, President of the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce said in a news release. “Jump-starting the actual construction of GigaPower will add another reason for people to want to do business and innovate in Austin and call Austin home.”
