The fiber network will deliver AT&T U-verse® with GigaPowerSM service, which can deliver broadband speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second and AT&T’s most advanced TV services, to customers and businesses.
Irving is one of 10 cities within Dallas County that was selected for the fiber network. Other cities include Dallas, Farmers Branch, Frisco, Grand Prairie, Highland Park, Mesquite, Plano, Richardson and University Park.
AT&T will work with local leaders in each market to discuss ways to bring the service to the communities.
“We’re really excited to be a part of AT&T’s fiber network,” said Shawn Callaway, interim president and CEO for the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce. “Advanced technologies are so important to our residents, schools, businesses and the infrastructure of our vibrant community.”
AT&T has selected cities, such as Irving, that have suitable network facilities, and show the strongest investment cases based on anticipated demand. The initiative continues AT&T’s ongoing commitment to economic development in these communities, bringing jobs, advanced technologies and infrastructure.
“We’re delivering advanced services that offer consumers and small businesses the ability to do more, faster, help communities create a new wave of innovation, and encourage economic development,” said Lori Lee, senior executive vice president, AT&T Home Solutions. “We’re interested in working with communities that appreciate the value of most advanced technologies and are willing to encourage investment by offering solid investment cases and policies.”
AT&T U-verse with GigaPower services are expected to roll out in parts of Dallas this summer. For more information, visit www.att.com/gigapowercities.
