AT&T Rolls Out 1 Gigabit Per Second GigaPower To 38 Cities

AT&T just made Roku owners and cord cutters in some cities very happy today with the announcement of the expansion of their GigaPower service to 38 additional cities.

These kinds of speeds were only dreamed of a few years ago by cord cutters. With the oncoming wave of 4K streaming options (and devices like the Roku 4 with the capability) this should allow full enjoyment of the format without buffering.

The 38 metro areas that AT&T will be entering, starting with the launch of service in parts of the Los Angeles and West Palm Beach metros today, are:

Alabama: Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery

Arkansas: Fort Smith/Northwest Arkansas and Little Rock

California: Bakersfield, Fresno, Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco and San Jose4

Florida: Pensacola and West Palm Beach

Georgia: Augusta

Indiana: Indianapolis

Kansas: Wichita

Kentucky: Louisville

Louisiana: Baton Rouge, Shreveport-Bossier, Jefferson Parish region and the Northshore

Mississippi: Jackson

Missouri: St. Louis5

Michigan: Detroit

Nevada: Reno

North Carolina: Asheville

Ohio: Cleveland and Columbus

Oklahoma: Oklahoma City and Tulsa

South Carolina: Charleston, Columbia and Greenville
Tennessee: Memphis

Texas: El Paso and Lubbock

Wisconsin: Milwaukee

According to AT&T, “Customer demand for AT&T GigaPower and sales have exceeded expectations since launching speeds up to 1 gigabit per second in Austin. The faster speeds offered through AT&T GigaPower keep consumers and small businesses connected as they are accessing more content on more devices. This improves a customer’s experience when they are connecting to the cloud, hosting a video conference, streaming videos and music, playing online games and more.”
