Residents in San Francisco’s Bay Area will be delighted to find out that AT&T has announced the regional roll out of its gigabit internet service today. Tens of thousands of residents can now get AT&T’s GigaPower service for internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second. AT&T has previously launched this service in Cupertino last year.
AT&T’s gigabit internet service in San Francisco will be available to residents in parts of Mountain View, San Ramon, San Jose, Dublin and Santa Clara, according to the telecommunications giant. The company has also said that it’s looking to triple availability by the end of this year.
“By expanding AT&T GigaPower to additional cities in the Bay Area beyond Cupertino, we are demonstrating our continued commitment to our customers whose appetite for high-speed data continues to grow,” said Jeni Bell, vice president and general manager, Northern California and Northern Nevada at AT&T.
The service is available in nearly 30 apartment complexes in the Bay Area where customers are getting internet speeds of up to 1Gbps over the company’s fiber GigaPower network for as low as $70 per month.
GigaPower network has been rolled out in more than 1.6 million locations across 22 of the largest metro areas in the United States. The company is planning to expand the availability of this service in parts of 34 more areas to cover a total of 56 metros across the U.S.
