AT&T yesterday announced another 11 metro areas where it plans to install gigabit fiber Internet.So far, AT&T Fiber is available in 29 metro areas in the US, andanother 38 (including those announced this week) are slated to get the service eventually.

The newly announced metro areas areGainesville and Panama City, Florida;Columbus,Georgia;Central Kentucky;Lafayette,Louisiana;Biloxi-Gulfport, Mississippi and Northeast Mississippi;Wilmington, North Carolina;Knoxville, Tennessee and Southeastern Tennessee;andCorpus Christi,Texas.

AT&T did not say when these areas will actually get service. The company said it will havedeployed in 45 metro areas by the end of 2016, including the 29 already being served. The 11 newly announced areas are presumably among those that won't get service until at least 2017.

AT&T has not been installing fiber throughout the entirety of each metro area, so just living in one of these cities won't guarantee you the fast Internet service. Overall, AT&T said it is on track todeploy fiber to 12.5 million customer locations by mid-2019, meeting a requirement imposed by the Federal Communications Commission when AT&T bought DirecTV . So far, the service isavailable to more than 3 million homes, apartments and small businesses. Unfortunately, a largemajority of homes inside AT&T's 21-state wireline territory will continue to be served byslower DSL lines.

Until recently, AT&T only offered its lowest fiber Internet prices to customers who opted into a program that scans their Web browsing in order to deliver personalized ads. But AT&T is now ending the controversial targeted ads program and says customers in each city and town will automatically be given the lowest available price.

Prices are higher in some areas than others, though. Generally, AT&T has been charging $70 a month for gigabit Internet in citieswhere Google Fiber also operates, and an extra $20 in cities where it doesn't face such competition. Google Fiber isn't in any of AT&T's11 newly announced metro areas, and AT&T did not announce pricing for those areas.

AT&T formerly called its fiber Internet "GigaPower" but has changed the name to AT&T Fiber and said it "will announce additional network technologies and products" under that brand in the near future. AT&T is also phasing out the U-verse brand, calling its non-fiber services AT&T Internet.

AT&T provides unlimited data to gigabit Internet customers, while imposingdata capsof anywhere from 150GB to 1TB on other customers. Some customers have the option of purchasing unlimited data for another $30 a month, and they can also be upgraded to unlimited data by subscribing to AT&T TV or DirecTV service. Customers who exceed their data caps are automatically charged $10 for each additional 50GB allotment.
