As AT&T Internet 1000, AT&T’s fiber delivered gigabit service, expands into Wilmington, North Carolina, the number of metro areas in which the carrier has rolled out their gigabit service rises to 53.
AT&T intends to have its all-fiber gigabit services up and running in at least 75 metro areas, management outlines in a press release.
In addition to select homes and small businesses, the launch in Wilmington includes connections for multi-tenant apartment buildings and condos, such as Woodridge Pointe and the Village at Mayfair. Access for those in parts of Leland is expected in future.

AT&T gigabit Internet service connections span 4.6 million locations, according to the company. Management expects to see that rise to 12.5 million at least by mid-2019.
Dubbed AT&T Internet 1000, the gigabit fiber Internet service starts at $70 per month. That’s for those who bundle it with other AT&T services and receive single, consolidated bills for all of them. Otherwise, service cost starts at $80 per month on a standalone basis.
No additional, or extra, charges are incurred, and equipment is included with a 12-month service contract.
“High-speed internet has quickly become a preferred way to access information and communicate,” Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo commented. “I am glad to see this investment from AT&T, and am certain that the increased ability to tout Wilmington’s connectivity to fiber internet further strengthens the reputation of our community.”
Added John Lyon, AT&T North Carolina regional director for external affairs: “We are proud to add Wilmington to our list of cities where we plan to bring our fastest internet speed available. AT&T’s ultra-fast internet speeds will open up more possibilities for our customers. They can enjoy doing the things they love online, with less frustration and in less time.”
