|AT&T has advised the community that they will soon start wiring the whole community for U-verse and GigaPower Internet. |
But no word yet on when these services will be available to Green Cay Village residents. More when I know more.

AT&T is currently installing fiber optic cable on the property that will bring fiber directly to each townhome unit. As for the condos, the fiber will go to the equipment rooms of each building.
What is U-verse? AT&T U-verse is a bundled service that provides high-speed internet, advanced TV service, and phone service over a single broadband connection much like the services provided by Comcast.
As for the relevance of U-verse to our community, our Comcast contract for TV service (Digital Starter) runs through January 2018. So until then, Comcast TV will continue to be provided to the townhomes and condos by the associations. But come 2017, when the associations will be considering whether or not to renew the Comcast contract, there will be completion - something we did not have in 2010 when we entered into the Comcast contract.
Note: Comcast and U-verse use the existing coaxial cable to distribute the signal to the outlets in the unit. So no additional wiring within the unit is required. However, it's not clear that both services can use the same coaxial cable at the same time. But I think the answer is no and if so, a unit can only have one service or the other unless they add a separate coaxial cable throughout the unit, which would not be an easy task.
