The expansion in the San Antonio area includes parts of Alamo Heights and Castle Hills. This initiative follows a previous announcement from AT&T that it would offer its ultra-fast internet speeds to parts of Converse, Hollywood Park, Terrell Hills, Universal City, and surrounding communities in the San Antonio area. The expansion means that gigabit broadband is now available to more than 230,000 homes, apartments, and small businesses in the area.

AT&T says it now offers high-speed internet services via its AT&T Fiber network to more than 5.5 million locations. More than 1.5 million of these locations are new this year; the company plans to reach another 1.5 million locations by the end of the year, which will bring the number of served locations to at least 7 million (see "AT&T Fiber adds eight metros to gigabit broadband count").
