U-verse with AT&T GigaPower is Coming to Prairie Village

Post Date:02/25/2015

After much anticipation, Prairie Village residents and small businesses will have access to AT&T’s ultra-fast, fiber-to-the-home network within the City.  AT&T has started preliminary utility work for the construction of its AT&T GigaPower fiber-optic network in Prairie Village.

Prairie Village residents can expect to see AT&T subcontractors working within the City’s right-of-way and various utility easements.  Area residents will receive door-hangers prior to construction activity beginning in their immediate neighborhood.  Workers will be placing buried conduits, installing fiber (both aerial and buried), and replacing utility poles when deemed necessary.

You may expect the following during the overall construction process:

  • Occasional lane closures will occur as contractors work along residential streets.
  • Contractors may need to access utility poles or underground equipment on your property. 
  • Digging in numerous easement areas will be necessary to install the fiber network within your neighborhood.  
  • Please note that construction work in your neighborhood should not disrupt any of your utility services. If you experience any disruption in service, please contact your utility provider immediately. 

If you have questions or concerns regarding construction on the AT&T GigaPower network in your area, call the AT&T GigaPower construction phone line at 913-676-1801.

Additional project updates including timelines will be provided on this page as they become available.
