AT&T plans to continue the rollout to new areas of Austin in 2014, and will even increase its speed up to 1 gigabit per second by mid-2014
AT&T claims to have the
fastest Internet service
in the west, and starting today, Austin will be the judge of that.
AT&T launched its U-verse all-fiber Internet network with GigaPower in Austin, Texas today, which will deliver initial speeds of 300 megabits-per-second.
According to AT&T, its new service will offer upstream speeds 20 times faster than what’s available today, and it will reportedly allow users to download a full HD movie in under two minutes.

“Our all-fiber network enables U-verse with GigaPower to give Austinites the fastest speeds available to consumers in the city,” said Dahna Hull, AT&T’s vice president and general manager for Austin. “With U-verse with GigaPower, our customers can download movies and music and navigate, post and interact on the web faster than ever before, and have one of the best TV experiences around. It’s reliable, crazy fast and priced to attract more and more people to give us a try.”
For those who are interested in the service, AT&T said it will offer two U-verse with GigaPower Internet offers: the standard package with Internet speeds up to 300 mbps (download your favorite TV show in less than nine seconds) for $99 per month, and the premier package with Internet speeds up to 300 Mbps (download an HD movie in less than two minutes) for $70 per month. The premier also includes a waiver of equipment, installation and activation fees as well as free HBO/HBO GO for 36 months and HD service for $120 per month.
AT&T's service is likely in response to Google's planned roll out of
Google Fiber in Austin
, which is supposed to occur mid-2014 as well. The service -- which is supposed to be 100 times faster than today's average broadband service -- was announced back in April of this year. AT&T announced its plans for a 1 gigabit per second service immediately after.

I would be happy to just get a 50Mbps connection in more remote areas in Texas. I'm downright spoiled by 50Mbps during my time in Hawaii... I filled up a 4TB external with... stuff.
