by | Aug 15, 2014 | Internet Services, Provider News

Who doesn’t want faster Internet speeds? How does speeds up to 1 Gig sound? If you’re a subscriber to CenturyLink, AT&T U-verse or Cox, you may already have access to Internet speeds that are 100 times faster than the average broadband speed.*

These Internet service providers have announced that they are planning to, or already have, launched 1 Gig speeds in select cities. Cox Communications has chosen Dallas/Fort Worth as their first destination of 1 Gig speeds. AT&T launched these speeds in Austin, Texas late last year and have chosen to expand the service to:

  • Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas
  • Houston, Texas
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Carrboro, North Carolina
  • Cary, North Carolina
  • Chapel Hill, North Carolina
  • Charlotte, North Carolina
  • Durham, North Carolina
  • Greensboro, North Carolina
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Winston-Salem, North Carolina
  • Overland Park, Kansas
  • Miami, Florida

So what is 1 Gig of speed capable of? Reliable service for multiple devices connected at the same time; faster streaming, uploads, and downloads; and online gaming – the capability to do all these things on the same Internet connection. What else could you ask for?

*The claim “100 times faster” is based on Akamai’s State of the Internet 4Q2013 report that concluded that the average American broadband connection speed is 10 Mbps.
