AT&T is expanding availability for its new multi-gigabit plans to over 30 new metro areas today, the telecommunications giant said Thursday. The expansion of its "Hyper-Gig" plans comes after itsin late January.
In addition, AT&T's 2-Gig and 5-Gig speed tiers will arrive later this year in parts of seven metro areas across Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas -- Lawton, Oklahoma; Youngstown, Ohio and the Texas cities of Abilene, Longview, Tyler, Victoria and Wichita Falls. These are all-new fiber areas for AT&T. Customers can sign up at att.com/notifyme to be alerted when these new AT&T Fiber plans are available at their address.
AT&T Fiber 2 Gig costs $110 a month (with AutoPay), and AT&T Fiber 5 Gig costs $180 a month (with AutoPay). Both plans include equipment fees, unlimited data and a freesubscription. There are also no annual contracts required, nor a price increase after 12 months. Effective through the end of March, all new customers ordering online will receive a $200 reward card.
"The importance of high-speed broadband internet has never been clearer," Bob O'Donnell, president of Technalysis Research, said in an AT&T press release. "Multi-gig fiber ups the ante and answers those demands with faster, reliable, symmetrical download and upload speeds."
