CHARLOTTE, N.C. Nov. 15, 2016 — AT&T launched ultra-fast internet service in additional cities in the Charlotte Region area, including in parts of Belmont, Cornelius, Mint Hill and surrounding areas.2 We’re offering a 1 gigabit connection to Charlotte Region homes, apartments and small business locations on our 100% fiber network powered by AT&T Fiber.
 
Our fastest internet speed, AT&T Internet 1000, is now available at over 400 multifamily area properties.
 
We previously announced ultra-fast internet speeds available in parts of Asheville/Greenville, Charlotte, Huntersville and Salisbury. We plan to expand access to ultra-fast internet speeds in parts of Davidson and Pineville in the future.
 
The Charlotte Region is one of 44 metros nationwide where our ultra-fast internet service is currently available. We plan to reach at least 67 metros with our fastest internet service.
 
We market our ultra-fast service to over 3 million locations nationwide, of which over 500,000 include apartments and condo units. We’re on track to meet the 12.5 million locations planned by mid-2019.
 
“Our customers are increasingly interacting with their world in more data-intensive ways,” said Carlos E. Sanchez, AT&T’s state director of external affairs. “A growing number of people are streaming content directly from their devices, and interacting with family and friends through live videos. For these reasons, we’re bringing our fastest internet speeds to Charlotte and its surrounding communities.”
