AT&T GigaPower fiber expanding to 38 more cities

AT&T announced Monday it will expand its 1Gbps GigaPower fiber optic broadband service to 38 more cities, bringing the total to 58 locales.

The carrier also said it launched GigaPower on Monday in Los Angeles and West Palm Beach, Fla., making fast fiber available to homes, apartments and small businesses.

AT&T launched GigaPower in Austin, Texas, about two years ago and has been waging a battle with Google Fiber and others ever since then. Aside from California cities, nearly all of AT&T’s GigaPower deployments are in Texas and states to the east of Texas, with none in the northeast, according to AT&T’s online map.
