AT&T building

AT&T has expanded its multi-gigabit broadband offering to parts of its entire fiber footprint of more than 100 metro areas, the company announced.

The multi-gigabit service, first introduced in January, is now available for more than 7 million customer locations across the company’s 21-state footprint, offering customers 2 Gbps and 5 Gbps tiers. By the end of 2025, the company expects to offer multi-gigabit service to 30 million customer locations.

AT&T also plans to bring service to seven all-new fiber metro areas in Texas, Oklahoma and Ohio by the end of this year.

The current prices for the “hypergig” service are:

  • 2 Gbps (consumer) $110/month + taxes; (business) $225/month + taxes
  • 5Gbps (consumer) $180/month + taxes; (business) $395/month + taxes

The prices are guaranteed for one year and include AT&T ActiveArmor internet security, AT&T All-Fi and HBO Max.

“We’re thrilled to bring our fastest speeds and our best internet experience to more homes and businesses across the country,” said Rick Welday, AT&T executive vice president and general manager of broadband, in a prepared statement.

AT&T is all in on fiber, adding 1 million net new fiber subscribers in 2021 and 271K in the fourth quarter. At the end of 2021, the company counted 6 million fiber subscribers, second only to Verizon. It has a goal of extending fiber to 30 million locations by the end of 2025.

Telco fiber initiatives like AT&T’s may be having a competitive impact. Both Comcast and Charter have announced speed increases in the last few weeks, with Charter doubling it’s entry level speed to 200 Mbps.

One thought on “AT&T Fiber Expands Multi-Gigabit Service to 7 Million Locations

  1. The last mile gets you. I reside in Atlanta, AT&T fiber has been on offer for years, I keep checking. I have to use UVerse, I talked with an AT&T line man once, he confirmed that fiber is at either end of my street, NOT on my street. Every time I check on getting fiber, I’m told “not available”.
