This report looks at the deployment of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) service in California by AT&T, the largest telecom company in the state. The findings show that the early deployment of the company’s “gigapower” all-fiber service is concentrated in wealthier communities, relegating lower-income neighborhoods to less advanced technologies that offer markedly slower speeds.
