AT&T Boosting High Speed Access to 75 Mbps, Prelude to Gigabit
AT&T has boosted consumer Internet access speeds to 75 Mbps in parts of Houston ; Baton Rouge, La; Grand Rapids, Michigan, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Mobile, Alabama; New Orleans, Louisiana; and South Bend, Indiana.
Those speeds also are available in Augusta, Ga.; Charleston, S.C.; Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Fla.; Monterey and Sacramento, Calif.; and St. Louis, Mo.
Those efforts are part of AT&T’s broader effort to enhance speeds in markets across the country, including gigabit access networks in a number of metropolitan areas across the United States.
AT&T invested nearly $1.4 billion in Houston between 2012 through 2014, and about $1.5 billion in Los Angeles over the same period and $2 billion New Jersey, among investments across the United States.
AT&T announced a major initiative in 2014 to expand the availability of U-verse with AT&T GigaPower in up to 25 markets nationwide, including Houston. The upgrades to 75 Mbps are a first step in that process.
