Installation Of ATT Fiber in Ann Arbor, MI

I am seeing that AT&T is slowly expanding their coverage for ATT Fiber in my town, Ann Arbor, MI.

 

Currently i am in a neighborhood where the service is not offered. My question is, is there anything I can do to entice ATT to run cables and infrastructure in my neighborhood so I can sign up for their Fiber Service.

Hello @bd_27,

 

Rest assured that we are working to update the infrastructure as quickly as possible. To sign up for notification when our fiber becomes available in your area Sign Up here. For more information about areas where fiber is under way check out AT&T Fiber Coverage Map. We hope this helps and thank you for your continued patience.

Unknown... unless or until you see a contractor installing fiber on the poles or burying orange conduit for fiber the answer would be no...

 

The 4 year (2016-2019) fiber expansion to reach 12.5+ million residential addresses within 21 state footprint (1 of the conditions of the government approval allowing ATT to purchase DirecTv in sumer 2015) has been met and exceeded to reach 14+ million addresses.

 

Top company officials say fiber deployment  is not done but will be scaled back to a slower pace...

Government, schools, business, cell tower and new greenfield residential developments will see fiber, brownfied (existing neighborhoods) will be considered on a case bases.

ATM (at this moment) the best course to ensure fiber at your address is to move to an address where the service is offered.

 

Note 14 million addresses is about 18% of the total residential footprint. It took 10 years (2006-end 2015) to reach 33 million addresses with FTTN (fiber to the node) currently offering 100, 75, 50, 25 internet depending on facilities and copper loop length after fiber VRAD). 33 million was about 42% of the footprint. Some of those FTTN have been upgraded to FTTP direct fiber. Additionally about 25% of the 14 million is MDU (multi dwelling units) known as apartment, condo complexes.

Depending on your zip code shows how much fiber is available... 26% in 48103, with less than 3% in 48104, and about 9% in 48105
