Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

April 24, 2017 -  AT&T has announced plans to bring its ‘100% Fiber Network’ powered by its AT&T Fiber℠ brand to parts of 8 new metro areas. Savannah is on the list. 

“This means we plan to offer the service to customers across at least 75 major metros,” according to the company. Service was launched to parts of Oakland, California last week.

“ We now market a 1 gigabit connection2 on our 100% fiber connection to 4.6 million locations across 52 major metros.  We expect to add 2 million locations in 2017, and we plan to reach at least 12.5 million locations by mid-2019,” the company states.

New metro areas where we're planning to bring our 100% fiber network include:

Dayton, Ohio

Macon, Georgia

Madison, Wisconsin

Monterey-Salinas, California

Savannah, Georgia

South Bend, Indiana

Springfield, Missouri

Western Michigan

"While other providers have slowed deployment, we'll continue to expand access to our ultra-fast internet to more customers, so they can more quickly connect to the things they love online," said Eric Boyer, senior vice president, Wireless and Wired Product Marketing at AT&T.

With service that starts with an ultra-fast gigabit internet connection it's possible to download 25 songs in 1 second to a customer’s  favorite 90-minute HD movie in less than 34 seconds. And, “all customers can enjoy our fastest upload and download speeds,” he added.

“You can also quickly access and stream the latest online movies, music and games. These ultra-fast speeds let you easily telecommute, video-conference, upload and download photos and videos, and connect faster to the cloud,” Boyer explained.

Internet customers on 100% fiber network also receive the latest Wi-Fi technology in their homes, according to the company, including faster Wi-Fi speeds, broader in-home Wi-Fi coverage and support for more Wi-Fi devices.
