The race to bring faster Internet speed to Atlanta heated up today as AT&T announced it would bring GigaPower to the city. The AT&T GigaPower network will feature speeds up to 1 gigabit per second. AT&T home and small business customers in Atlanta and surrounding cities in the metropolitan region, including Decatur and Sandy Springs, can sign up for the service today.

AT&T’s announcement comes on the heels of Google announcing it will bring ultra high speed Internet to the metro area, while Comcast is also planning to upgrade its network.

The cost of AT&T GigaPower isn’t cheap: $120 per month for standalone service. U-Verse customers will have options to bundle and will also get faster Wi-Fi.

The success of the first AT&T GigaPower market in Austin led to a major expansion beginning in 2014. AT&T is considering expanding its all-fiber network to up to 100 cities and municipalities across 25 markets.
