AT&T Lights Up GigaPower in Two More Markets

AT&T said it has launched fiber-based GigaPower services in portions of two more markets – Cleveland, Ohio; and Sacramento, Calif.

In Sacramento, GigaPower is initially being targeted to Placer County (Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville and surrounding communities); in Cleveland, the launches cover parts of the city, as well as Bedford Heights, Bedford, Shaker Heights and some surrounding communities.

In both new launch markets, AT&T GigaPower’s 1 Gbps standalone service starts at $90 per month, when customers agree to participate in AT&T Internet Preferences, the company’s targeted Web advertising service. Customers can also bundle in pay TV service from DirecTV or U-verse TV.

AT&T said its GigaPower network is currently available in over 2.2 million locations across 29 of the nation’s largest metro areas, and reiterated it has plans to expand 1-Gig to parts of 27 more areas and eventually reach 14 million residential and commercial locations with its fiber-based network.

AT&T also launched 1-Gig to businesses in the Cleveland area, including Cleveland-Elyria, Canton-Massillon, Findlay, Dayton, Columbus, Springfield, Akron, Toledo, Sandusky, Cincinnati and Youngstown-Warren-Boardman market areas.
