AT&T Confirms Plans To Deliver U-verse® With AT&T GigaPower(SM) In Cupertino

Customers in Cupertino Will Receive Benefits Tied to All-Fiber Infrastructure for High-Speed Internet, TV Services

CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* today confirmed it will expand its ultra-fast AT&T GigaPower network to the City of Cupertino. The all-fiber network will bring symmetrical upload and download broadband speeds up to 1 gigabit per second, and AT&T's most advanced TV services to consumers and small businesses.

AT&T is deploying additional fiber and electronics to the existing network in Cupertino to meet the growing demand for ultra-fast broadband.  The network enhancements will enable customers to have access to AT&T's fastest Internet speeds available to consumers.**

Local residents and small businesses on the AT&T GigaPower network will also experience cutting-edge TV services with the ability to watch and record five simultaneous HD streams, and its largest capacity DVR with one terabyte of storage.

"Cupertino is proud to be the first city announced in California set to receive the ultra-high-speed AT&T GigaPower network," said Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong.  "Cupertino is leading the way in creating an environment that fosters innovation, and the deployment of ultra-high-speed broadband service will further support innovation in our community, spur our local businesses, and result in even greater economic development in our city.  We are very pleased to work with AT&T to offer this unprecedented service to our residents and small businesses."

"AT&T has been bringing the latest, most advanced technology to our customers for well over a century, and today we continue that tradition by bringing AT&T GigaPower – the fastest broadband network available – to Cupertino," said Ken McNeely, President of AT&T California.  "The ultra-fast speeds of the AT&T GigaPower network open up a whole new world of possibilities for our customers in Cupertino.  AT&T's network already serves as a backbone for innovation in California, and AT&T GigaPower represents a huge leap forward.  From our wireless network to our broadband network, we are proud to empower entrepreneurs, developers, artists, and creative thinkers of every stripe to build and shape the future of California."

Specific locations of availability and pricing for the Cupertino market will be announced at a later date.

On April 21, 2014, AT&T announced a major initiative to expand its ultra-fast fiber-based AT&T GigaPower network to up to 100 candidate cities and municipalities across the nation. As part of that announcement, AT&T said it is also considering other San Jose areas – Campbell, Mountain View and San Jose as candidate municipalities for the service.

U-verse with AT&T GigaPower has launched to tens of thousands of customer locations across the Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth markets.  The AT&T GigaPower network will also be delivered to Charlotte, Greensboro, Houston, Jacksonville, Fla., Miami, Nashville, Overland Park, Kan., Raleigh-Durham, San Antonio, and Winston-Salem.

Additionally, AT&T has committed that upon approval of its proposed acquisition of DIRECTV, the company will expand the AT&T GigaPower network to an additional 2 million customer locations. All of these 2 million locations are over and above what the company announced in April.

Other AT&T initiatives in 2014 include:

  • Enhance and expand its 4G LTE wireless network, the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network.**** AT&T 4G LTE wireless service is available in 28 major cities across California.
  • Expand its U-verse footprint to more areas of California. U-verse is currently available in the Bakersfield, Fresno, Los Angeles, Modesto, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose areas and surrounding communities.

AT&T invested more than $7.1 billion in its California wireless and wireline networks from 2011 through 2013.

AT&T has served the state of California for over 100 years and employs more than 34,700 people in the state.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.
