AT&T Delivers 1Gbps Broadband to Austin Residents
In April of 2013, AT&T announced that it would deliver 1Gbps Internet to Austin, Texas residents through its U-verse GigaPower service. While the service launched in December of 2013 as a network comprised of 100 percent fiber, it failed to deliver the 1Gbps speed that was initially advertised, instead providing subscribers with 300Mbps Internet service. Failing to deliver its advertised speeds, AT&T promised customers that sometime in 2014 1Gbps speeds would be successfully delivered. That day has finally come, as AT&T has revealed that it is now offering 1Gbps U-verse GigaPower service to residents that live in Austin. Moreover, those currently subscribed to AT&T’s U-verse GigaPower service that receive 300Mbps speeds will see their connection increase to 1Gbps at no additional charge.
For residential customers within GigaPower areas, 1Gbps Internet through AT&T U-verse starts at $70 a month and requires a one-year term.
