AT&T has introduced a new app that allows prospective FTTH customers to see if its GigaPower 1 Gbps broadband service is available in a particular location, reflecting how consumers see broadband as a key amenity when choosing an apartment or condominium.

With its new interactive map, customers can search for apartments by ZIP code or use the map to zoom in from a national to a local view.

AT&T is working to expand its GigaPower network to reach to at least 56 major metro areas. The GigaPower service is currently available in 425,000 apartments and condos across the U.S. Each of the apartments shown in the interactive app offer an internet connection over fiber today, and consumers have the option to select to view apartments with AT&T GigaPower.

The carrier said that apartment owners and communities can also ask about delivering its service to their property by going to the site. At that site, owners can nominate their property to be evaluated as a candidate for fiber-based services.
