AT&T will beat Google in delivering 1 Gbps internet to NC residents

A lot of North Carolina residents started jumping for joy when Google announced that Charlotte and the Raleigh-Durham area were among the 34 cities it selected for an expansion of its 1 gigabit Google Fiber internet service. Customers can opt for a TV/internet bundle for $120, an internet-only bundle for $70, or a “free” internet bundle (5 Mbps down, 1 Mbps up after a one-time $300 construction fee).
 
While Google is still in the planning stages at this point, AT&T has already reached an agreement with the city of Winston-Salem to deliver a 1 gigabit network. AT&T says that its U-verse with GigaPower service is 10 times faster than the internet speeds currently available in Winston-Salem, which is the home of Wake Forest University.

 
“Our City has a well-deserved reputation as a technology and medical leader and a network of this magnitude will help take the work underway in both those areas to new levels of innovation and achievement,” said Winston-Salem mayor Allen Joines.
 
“We’ve already received great input from North Carolinians eager for the fastest available speeds,” added Venessa Harrison, President, AT&T-North Carolina. “This ultra-fast fiber build will help foster innovation, enhance education, and encourage growth.”
 
AT&T has plans to expand U-verse with GigaPower to other NC cities including Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, and Raleigh.
