The expansion in Georgia comes as AT&T continues to deepen its fiber deployments across the country. In May, AT&T announced expansions of its fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) services for residential and business customers in eight markets in the Midwest, South and West.

"We'll continue to expand our 100 percent fiber AT&T GigaPower network to additional locations," AT&T said. "We're planning to triple availability by the end of 2016."
