AT&T to bring its GigaPower all-fiber network to Cupertino

In a recent announcement, US wireless carrier AT&T has revealed that it has received the go-ahead from the authorities in Cupertino, California, to offer its GigaPower fiber-optic-based home Internet service to the city.

The announcement by AT&T implies that Cupertino will be the first California city to gain access to the carrier's GigaPower all-fiber network. Some other Bay Area cities in which AT&T plans to bring its GigaPower Internet service include San Francisco, Mountain View, Campbell, San Jose, and Oakland.

The imminent rollout of the Dallas-based AT&T's GigaPower all-fiber network to Cupertino homes and businesses will unfold the advantage of identical upload and download broadband speeds of up to one gigabit per second (1 Gbps).

Despite the fact that AT&T has stated that the introduction of the gigabit-speed fiber service in Cupertino will take a few months, the Cupertino's approval to AT&T to bring its GigaPower all-fiber network is noteworthy; particularly because Cupertino is Apple's hometown, and is near Google's Mountain View headquarters.

As of now, the gigabit-speed fiber service is available in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Austin. AT&T also apparently has efforts underway to launch the service in Houston and San Antonio, and cities in Florida, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
