AT&T to expand FTTH to eight more cities
Category: Alternative Telecom
Publishing Date: April 21, 2017

AT&T is expanding its gigabit fibre services to homes in eight more US cities, potentially adding 2 million premises by the end of 2017 to the 4.6 million homes now accessible.

The company said that it plans to expand the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) coverage to 12.5 million locations by the middle of 2019.

"While other providers have slowed deployment, we’ll continue to expand access to our ultra-fast internet to more customers, so they can more quickly connect to the things they love online," said Eric Boyer, AT&T’s senior vice president for wireless and wired product marketing.

The eight new markets for FTTH coverage are Dayton, Ohio; Macon, Georgia; Madison, Wisconsin; Monterey-Salinas, California; Savannah, Georgia; South Bend, Indiana; Springfield, Missouri; and Western Michigan.

The announcement came on the same day that AT&T launched its FTTH services – which is offers under the "100% Fiber" brand – in Oakland, California. The roll-out started in Austin, Texas, four years ago.
