AT&T Launches Gigabit Internet Access For South Carolina

DirecTV Choice Package

Gigabit Internet Access

Business customers in Charleston, Mount Pleasant Summerville and North Charleston as well as Upstate and Midlands markets are offered gigabit internet access by AT&T. In the Upstate; Anderson, Duncan, Easley, Greenville, Greer, Mauldin, Piedmont and Spartanburg get fiber service. Midlands cities including Irmo, Blythewood, and West Columbia, as well as York will also be receiving the service.

This makes AT&T the first option for the ultra-fast speeds in Lowcountry. Considering the region’s growing technology industry, offering a much faster internet compared to others will help to attract more business.

A speed of 1000 megabits per second allows users to download a High Definition movie within seconds. Businesses can download 8,000 word processing documents in 1 second, and backup or restore 1 TB data in just 2.5 hours.

As per the AT&T website, customers should have fiber-ready buildings to use the service. In South Carolina, AT&T has expanded its fiber footprint to more than 13,900 business customers and 180 multitenant office buildings in the state are enjoying the fastest network connection. AT&T is also planning on bringing gigabit internet speeds to businesses in 22 Tennessee communities.


Fast Network

As for the AT&T Business Fiber, the company aims to launch nationwide U-Verse Business Voice, as calls by internet VoIP phone service delivers better sound quality and reliability. “For years, as a result of the pro-business policies that have been pursued by our elected leaders at the state and local levels, AT&T has provided Gigabit and multi-Gigabit connections to businesses across Tennessee, helping to spur business success and job creation,” Joelle Phillips, President of AT&T Tennessee, said in a press release.

“With the increased speeds now available through AT&T Business Fiber, AT&T employees have shown yet another example of how we are innovating to increase connectivity to businesses in urban and rural areas alike,” Phillips added. However, it is unfortunate that AT&T is not offering this speed to home customers.

In accordance with that, Ann Elsas, AT&T spokeswoman said, “While I cannot speculate or provide forward-looking timelines, on average it takes us one year from the day we announce plans to bring AT&T GigaPower to a new metro area to when we begin installing residential service.”

“In today’s global, digital economy, fortune favors the fast. The availability of high-speed communications capabilities delivered by fiber optics is listed as a priority for a vast number of companies seeking to expand or relocate facilities,” Bobby Hitt, State Commerce Secretary commented.
