AT&T Launches Ultra-Fast Gigabit Internet Speeds in Hendersonville, Today
OREANDA-NEWS. AT&T1 launched ultra-fast Internet service today with speeds up to 1 gigabit per second over the AT&T GigaPower network to homes, apartments and small businesses in parts of Hendersonville and surrounding communities.2
This launch of service is in addition to Nashville-area cities where AT&T had previously made the ultra-fast Internet service available: Clarksville, Franklin, Gallatin, Lebanon, Murfreesboro, Nashville, Smyrna, Spring Hill and surrounding communities.
Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second over the 100% fiber AT&T GigaPower network let you instantly access the latest online movies, music, games, and can improve your experience when connecting to the cloud, videoconferencing and more. With speeds up to 1 gigabit per second you can download 25 songs in less than a second, a TV show in three seconds or your favorite HD movie in less than 36 seconds.3
“For many years, private industry has offered high-speed Internet connections that improve access to education, health care and employment opportunities here in Hendersonville,” said State Sen. Ferrell Haile. “Today’s announcement that AT&T will offer its ultra-fast fiber network in our community is yet another example of the important investments being made in Sumner County.”
“This type of investment in cutting-edge technology is exactly why we are constantly working in Nashville and with local leaders to cultivate a business-friendly environment,” said State Rep. Courtney Rogers. “There is so much growth and energy here in Hendersonville, and the availability of residential gigabit Internet access will be key as we continue to attract new businesses and residents to the area.”
“The work being done by Sen. Haile, Rep. Rogers and Rep. Lamberth, along with our local elected officials, is vital to our efforts to attract new investments from the private sector in Sumner County,” said Jimmy Johnston, president and CEO of Forward Sumner. “When you combine the positive business environment that we enjoy in Sumner County with the increased availability of this modern communications infrastructure, we are certainly improving our ability to attract employers to Sumner County.”
“The billions of dollars AT&T has invested in our wired and wireless high-speed Internet networks is possible in large part because of the smart, pro-investment policies and pro-business pursuits of our state and local leaders,” said Kathy Sager, regional director of external and legislative affairs for AT&T in Tennessee. “We are excited to extend the area’s first 100% fiber optic network to offer speeds up to 1 gigabit per second to residential and small business customers, and we can’t wait to see what people in Hendersonville do with those speeds.”

We successfully launched the first AT&T GigaPower metro in Austin, Texas 2 years ago. That led to a major expansion in multiple U.S. metros beginning in 2014. In 2015 we marked a major milestone deploying the AT&T GigaPower network to more than 1 million locations, and we expect to more than double availability by the end of 2016.
AT&T GigaPower is now available in 20 of the nation’s largest metros areas, and we’ve announced plans to expand our ultra-fast Internet service in parts of 36 additional metro areas - which will total at least 56 metros served.
We plan to continue to roll out our fastest Internet services over a 100% fiber network to reach more than 14 million residential and commercial locations.
