AT&T North Carolina gigabit service is spreading fast, according to the company. The company’s 1 Gbps-100 percent fiber network service, dubbed GigaPower, now reaches customers in five major metro areas and more than 15 communities in the state. This was achieved after the service launched in the state just 18 months ago.
The carrier said it has worked closely with property owners and residents in apartment communities to roll out GigaPower access in nearly 20,000 individual apartment units in more than 80 complexes. All told, GigaPower service is now available to hundreds of thousands of homes, apartments and small businesses throughout North Carolina, according to AT&T.
