U.S. broadband giant AT&T could roll out 1Gbps fiber-optic service to up to 21 new metropolitan areas, including Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Jose, California, the company said Monday.
The company's rollout of its U-verse broadband with GigaPower service will also include television service. AT&T had previously announced plans to build ultra-fast broadband in Austin and Dallas in Texas and in Raleigh-Durham and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The company will work with local leaders and groups to discuss ways to bring the ultra-fast broadband service to communities, the company said in a press release. Communities that have suitable network facilities, and show the strongest investment deals, based on anticipated demand and the most receptive policies, will influence the company's selections, AT&T said.
