SAN ANTONIO (AP) - AT&T has announced it will bring faster internet service to the San Antonio area.

Mayor Ivy Taylor said Tuesday the service will help grow the economy around the city.

The company says its GigaPower network has a 1 gigabit per second speed. That’s about 100 times faster than what U.S. consumers typically get. Such speeds are common in parts of Asia and Northern Europe but aren’t as prevalent in the U.S.

The company currently offers such speeds in Austin and previously committed to bring GigaPower to Dallas and Fort Worth. It announced in April it would expand GigaPower to 25 select metropolitan areas.

Google Fiber signed an agreement in March to provide a similar service in San Antonio.
