DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Downloading 25 songs in one second, a TV show in less than three seconds, or an HD online movie in 36 seconds, is now a reality for some North Texas residents.
AT&T launched its new Gigapower Internet service Thursday. Customers in Highland Park and University Park are the first to get to try it out. AT&T says it’s the fastest internet speed the DFW area has ever seen.
“Fast, fast, fast,” is how Hardmon Williams III, AT&T’s vice president and general manager for North Texas described it. “So probably the way to think about it is the opportunity to look at speeds that are almost 100 times faster than what you typically see in a typical home.”
By the end of the year, Allen, Fairview, Irving and McKinney should be running on Gigapower. It’s coming to Fort Worth also, along with Arlington, Euless, Granbury, North Richland Hills, Weatherford and Willow Park.
For the fastest speeds, residential customers can expect to pay at least $120 per month. Slightly slower speeds are available starting at $90 per month.
