AT&T Launches Project AirGig Trials to Bring Ultra-Fast Internet Over Power Lines Closer to Reality

Recently Launched U.S. and International Trials Could Pave the Way for Gigabit Internet Wherever There are Power Lines

Project AirGig is part of AT&T’s ongoing effort to accelerate internet connections to a gig or more for all communities through both wired and wireless solutions.

I am excited to share AT&T just launched our first national Project AirGig trial in Georgia.

Project AirGig is a first-of-its-kind technology that could one day deliver internet speeds well over 1 gigabit per second via a millimeter wave (mmWave) signal guided by power lines.

AirGig technology represents over a decade of research by AT&T Labs and more than 300 patents and patent applications. It also represents a potential new era in connectivity where turbocharged data speeds can be available almost everywhere in the world.

There are two trials in the current phase of the project. AT&T launched the first trial this fall with an electricity provider outside the U.S. And, we just launched the second trial in rural Georgia working with Georgia Power. It is our hope that AirGig could one day be deployed in many areas not served by high speed internet today.

AT&T has a long-history of connecting people with their world and is proud to be on the cutting-edge of innovation, now with Project AirGig trials. This is an exciting time to work in the communications technology industry, and we look forward to yet another way to deliver gigabit internet connections to consumers.

Thank you for what you do every day to make our work in Kentucky a success, for our customers and our commonwealth.
