Re: AT&T GigaPower coverage
Here's hoping that the competition will end with some lower rates for customers, but I won't hold my breath on that one. I'm still using a pretty slow speed here in SW Florida and I'm still not in the market for gigabit speeds anytime soon. I wonder how many others will pass on the super speed internet even if available in their area?

Re: AT&T GigaPower coverage
It's not great from a PR perspective that Google was not able to beat the competition to market. Yet I think the rivalry will end up helping customers. Google has the cachet with techies, but if Verizon can compete on performance and price that's good for the average Joe.

AT&T GigaPower coverage
AT&T doesn't like to share data on what percentage of homes it reaches with GigaPower in a given region, but a spokesperson told me that coverage has more than doubled in Charlotte in the past 12 months. That would suggest that the telco reaches about 40% of Charlotte households (unless a a significant number of locations with access are businesses?). I'm skeptical, however. A random availbility search where I plugged Charlotte addresses into the AT&T database didn't yield a single home with GigaPower access. Nothing scientific about that test, but it does make me wonder.
