Potential customer wants to sign up for fiber availability notification

I live in a neighborhood that AT&T is apparently bringing fiber into (I had flags all over my yard).  Is there a way to sign up to be notified when fiber service becomes available?  I am currently a customer of another company.  I can not switch until AT&T offers higher bandwidth to my house.

Thanks!

Hi @pendragonsfolly, thank you for your interest in AT&T Fiber Internet!

 

AT&T Internet is not available in all areas, but AT&T is working to change that!

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you for contacting us on AT&T Community Forums!

Are there flags all over the neighbors yards?

If no, then a local neighbor is having a single line buried from either ATT or the cable company, 811 was called to mark existing services so hopefully no lines are cut when the new line is buried.

If yes, there is generally a white flag labeled purposed path for the main line that will be installed. Note that depending on the size of the buildout, and being underground could be 2 months to 9+ months before addresses will be turned green for ordering.

It would be more effective to check the availability site monthly. Especially if you see lots of utility work.

There are flags over much of the neighborhood.  My wife (and a couple neighbors) were told by some of the workers that "they were laying fiber for AT&T".  However, I don't know if that is a definite indicator that it is for internet.
The "other side" of our neighborhood (~ 2 mi away) is new construction and has fiber already.

What I am hearing is that there is not a place to sign up for notifications.  So I will just continue to monitor the site, I guess. 
At least I wasn't missing an obvious link on the main page.

I'm in the same boat as you. Contractors running fiber for AT&T down the road including right in front of my house. They say it's for Internet service, but I'd love to know for sure (from a AT&T source).

Here are some pics of what they are doing.

I know this is a old thread. But just wanted to say that the work they did in the pictures above was to extened the fiber that was running to the VRAD down the street to a new 5G tower they built.

However. 2 years later contractors are back on our street trenching fiber right now. They are running it straight to where the VRAD is right now (they have white arrows spray painted in the direction they are trenching and it leads right to where the VRAD is) and there is a new concrete "pad" next to the VRAD where I'm guessing the PFP will go. 

Also noticed they have put in quite a few of those little green "boxes" they bury. 

Can't wait.

Point being, you really have no way of telling when of if AT&T Fiber is coming. I figured they would be back in a few months to install the fiber internet service. Then out of the blue two years later I see someone had the city come out and spray paint where the utilities are buried, then a few days later they are out trenching more fiber, this time to the street where the VRAD is and like I said I'm pretty sure where the PFP is going.
