Fiber not available to the whole street

Why is fiber not available to all houses on my street? It ends at one corner and doesn't cross the street. It comes to the final house at the other end of the street and stops. No one else has the ability to get it according to an online test of everyone's addresses. My current Internet 75 does not keep up with multiple streamers or someone else doing something on the internet while I'm working from my computer through a vpn. I would like an explanation as to why the rest of us can't access Fiber.

Each fiber buildout is for specific area which borders would be streets.

As an example if area planned is 6 blocks by 6 blocks, the streets forming the area would be the dividing line... my development from the 1920s has FTTN while the development across the street build in the 1950s received FTTP about 2 years ago, before that they were ADSL2+ from CO with best speed of 5 while I could have 50, now they have 1000 and I still have 50.

So you're saying, that my street could be on a dividing line where everyone  else gets Fiber except the few houses in the middle?

click on the map

choose FIBER on bottom left

zoom into area of concern

Map is generally updated every 6 months.

Not knowing where your located look at Indianapolis to see several pockets of fiber and non fiber areas.

Currently about 30% (18 million) of ATT hardwired addresses are direct fiber FTTP with 5% (3 million) being added each year till end of 2025. This will complete a 10 year fiber buildout with 50% (30 million out of estimated 60 million) having direct fiber access.

zip code?

Internet 75 is very good for FTTN (Fiber To The Node).

Currently about 24 million addresses have FTTN option, depending on facilities and copper distance from the VRAD the speed tiers are 100/20, 75/20, 50/10, 45/6, 25/5, 25/2.

There also exists 18 million residential addresses on ADSL2+ where best speed tier could be 18, 10, 5, 3, 1.5 and .76.

ATT hardwired internet for 80% of 21 state footprint is one of the above. For the 20% (15 million) that have no hardwired service option the ATT choice is cellular either as hotspot or fixed wireless.

Result is internet 75 is better than 65% of addresses can receive… they are many with internet 10 or below that would be very happy to have internet 50, internet 75 would be a dream.

Just my thoughts…

Zip code: 32503

Thanks for the map. It may be old like you said. Haven't seen anyone digging or laying lines though. I have been working from home and work gets really slow at times especially when kids come home and stream something. Even if I use the stupid Smart Home Manager app and prioritize my device, it really doesn't do much in the evening. 

Anyway, the map you sent has no coverage for my street. I checked the online address check on AT&Ts page with all the addresses up and down my street and found that it is available to a house at the corner of my block but not the rest of us. It is also available to the houses across the street in the other direction. Maybe their lying on the website I was on: https://www.att.com/buy/bundles
