https://delimiter.com.au/2016/05/13/att ... across-us/news AT&T has announced the expansion of its ultra-fast all-fibre broadband service into more parts of the USA, with the aim of vastly expanding availability by the end of 2016.
The telco said its service for homes and small businesses is now available in parts of Atlanta, Los Angeles, Kansas City and Oklahoma City, while the ‘Business Fiber’ service has now grown in Chicago, Dallas, Miami and San Francisco,
The firm’s service offers speeds of up to 1Gbps by providing fibre to the premises (FTTP) for homes and small businesses.
“As a result of these cities’ pro-investment policies, AT&T is proud to bring blazing fast
Internet to these communities,” said AT&T Georgia President Bill Leahy, discussing the Atlanta expansion. “Because of their strong leadership, the residents in these communities will be poised for continued growth, allowing them to better compete in a global economy.”
In a statement, the firm said it will continue to expand its 100% fibre ‘GigaPower’ network to new locations, with the plan being to eventually triple availability by the end of 2016.
In a few years most of the world will have left us for dead in internet speeds and we will be like dial up subscribers trying to access ADSL websites. Slow and some features won’t work. This will cripple business trying to compete in the world market.
