As I have written about a number of times, AT&T keeps expanding their 1 Gbps service (GigaPower) to virtually nobody outside of extremely small areas that are mostly pre-wired for the service. That hasn’t stopped AT&T from celebrating such accomplishments with ribbon cutting ceremonies and numerous PR releases discussing how great AT&T is to these cities. Meanwhile, the cities have no actual access to the service.
More recently, AT&T had a ribbon-cutting ceremony because one residential building complex in Illinois was deemed ready for the GigaPower service. AT&T has also thrown a party because they expanded their GigaPower service to a single park in Henderson, Kentucky. Several weeks before that, AT&T threw a party because they were expanding GigaPower to several business buildings in Nashville, Tennessee. In the past, AT&T has thrown parties for simply announcing that GigaPower “might” be coming to a city.
Today, AT&T issued a press release about their newest GigaPower expansion plans. This time, in Tennessee, AT&T has officially deemed an Industrial Park in Jackson, TN, as the “first park in Tennessee to receive AT&T’s Fiber Ready designation.”
Does AT&T plan on allowing for other areas of Jackson to get this service? No idea. AT&T didn’t expand on that answer. Then again, that is intentional. The chances of those outside of this park receiving this service are small, if not zero.
