GASTONIA, Sept. 25, 2018 — AT&T* is now offering a 1 gigabit connection1 on our 100% fiber network powered by AT&T FiberSM to select customer locations in parts of Belmont, in addition to parts of Gastonia and Gaston County.2
"This brings great opportunities to Gaston County,” said Dr. Stephen Hannon, Board Chair of TechWorks of Gaston County. “Businesses need this type of advanced internet speed to reach their full potential and compete. Our students will benefit greatly because of the remote learning possibilities that become available. The ultimate effect of having gigabit will be more and better jobs in Gaston County."
Gaston County is one of 71 metros nationwide across 9 million locations where our ultra-fast internet service is currently available. We plan to reach at least 14 million locations across at least 84 metro areas by mid-2019.
“Our customers are increasingly interacting with their world in more data-intensive ways,” said Carlos Sanchez, director of external affairs for AT&T North Carolina. “Expanding our fiber footprint is part of our commitment to deliver ultra-fast internet that keeps residents and businesses connected and helps attract the new jobs, investment and innovation.”
An ultra-fast internet connection powered by AT&T Fiber lets you quickly access and stream the latest online movies, music and games. You can easily telecommute, video-conference, upload and download photos and videos, and connect faster to the cloud.
Eligible locations can choose from a range of internet speed plans on our 100% fiber network. Plans are designed to deliver the same speeds up and down. These plans include AT&T Internet 100, AT&T Internet 300 and AT&T Internet 1000.2
