AT&T is now offering a 1 gigabit connection on their 100% fiber network powered by AT&T Fiber to customer locations in parts of the Milwaukee area, including in parts of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, Waukesha and surrounding communities.

The ultra-fast internet speeds are expected to arrive in West Allis in the future.

The Milwaukee area is one of 47 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 nearly 4 million locations nationwide, of which over 650,000 include apartments and condo units. We plan to reach at least 12.5 million locations by mid-2019.

“Our customers are increasingly interacting with their world in more data-intensive ways,” said Scott T. VanderSanden, president of AT&T Wisconsin. “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 Milwaukee area communities powered by AT&T Fiber.”

“The 100% fiber network from AT&T will contribute to our growing economy and quality of life in Milwaukee,” said Tim Sheehy, president of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce. “Access to high-speed internet will help create new jobs, grow small businesses and improve access to educational opportunities.”

Internet-only pricing for customers who choose AT&T Internet 1000, our fastest speed tier on our 100% fiber network, starts as low as $80 a month with a 12 month commitment. Customers may be able to add one of our award-winning DIRECTV or U-verse TV services. We have single, double and triple play offers to fit each customer’s needs.
