AT&T U-Verse with GigaPower, AT&T’s answer to Google Fiber, will soon come to Nashville.
Less than four months after Google announced that Nashville was one of the top candidate cities to receive Google Fiber, AT&T has announced that GigaPower will soon be offered in Nashville. GigaPower will offer download broadband speeds up to one gigabit per second, which is approximately 100 times faster than average American internet speeds. Additionally, customers on the AT&T GigaPower network can enjoy television services, including the ability to watch and record five simultaneous HD streams, as well as a capacity DVR at one terabyte of storage.
Specific locations and pricing for the Nashville area will announced at a later date.
“We are very pleased that AT&T has selected Nashville for its ultra-high speed fiber network,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “This kind of technology is important to keep our city vibrant and attractive, and it is further proof of how Nashville is positioned as a city of the future. We look forward to working with AT&T as they bring this exciting new service to our residents.”
Though the coming GigaPower will only apply to Nashville, AT&T is considering five surrounding areas as candidates for service, including Clarksville, Franklin, Murfreesboro, Smyrna and Spring Hill.
GigaPower is already available in Austin, Texas; AT&T also plans to introduce the service in Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding cities, as well as in Raleigh-Durham and in Winston-Salem.
