AT&T has expanded the North Carolina footprint of its 1-Gbps U-verse with AT&T GigaPower fiber to the premises (FTTP) offering by initiating service in parts of Greensboro and Durham. Parts of surrounding communities of both markets also can receive the FTTP services.

As previously reported by CablingInstall.com's sister site, Lightwave, the service provider reached an agreement last year with the North Carolina Next Generation Network and several North Carolina communities to install the fiber-optic network infrastructure necessary to supply the gigabit-speed services.

Greensboro and Durham join Apex, Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Morrisville, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem as markets where AT&T is offering U-verse with GigaPower in the state.

AT&T says it now offers GigaPower in 15 markets, with plans to add parts of Jacksonville, St. Louis, and San Antonio to the mix. The company debuted the 1-Gbps FTTP service in Austin, TX, and subsequently announced a list of more potential expansion markets last year.

It also promises to add an additional 2 million potential subscribers to the GigaPower footprint should its proposed merger with DirecTV receive regulatory approval.
