AT&T on Monday announced a major initiative to expand its ultra-fast “GigaPower” fiber network to San Diego and 20 other metropolitan areas across the United States.
The fiber network will deliver Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second and AT&T’s most advanced TV services to consumers and businesses.
AT&T said it will work with local leaders in the targeted markets to discuss ways to bring the service to their communities.
In December, the company announced that Austin, Dallas, Raleigh-Durham, and Winston-Salem would be the initial markets. Monday’s announcement brings the total communities to 25.
“We’re delivering advanced services that offer consumers and small businesses the ability to do more, faster, help communities create a new wave of innovation, and encourage economic development,” said Lori Lee, senior executive vice president, AT&T Home Solutions.
“We’re interested in working with communities that appreciate the value of the most advanced technologies and are willing to encourage investment by offering solid investment cases and policies.”
Google is also building a national fiber network, but San Diego is not on the initial list of target communities.
Cox Communications offers a fiber network in San Diego, but only for businesses.
