Gigabit internet services are slowly being rolled out across different cities in the U.S., no one company is offering a nationwide service as of now, that may take a while. AT&T is one of the few companies that’s working in this space and today it announced that its gigabit internet service will be launched soon in Silicon Valley, Cupertino to be precise, which we all know as Apple’s backyard.
AT&T’s gigabit internet service, which offers upload and download speeds of up to 1Gbps, is already live in Austin and Fort Worth. The company also confirmed its plans to bring the service to an additional 11 cities, including Nashville, San Antonio, Houston and more.
The company is considering expanding the service to other communities in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area such as San Francisco, San Jose and Google’s turf, Mountain View. It is worth mentioning here that Google, which is one of the biggest companies in the Valley, has a gigabit internet service of its own.
AT&T hasn’t revealed details about pricing as yet or when it will start work on building the network in Cupertino. In other markets where the service is available the company is charging $70 per month for 1Gbps speeds. AT&T has said that the service will be able to consumers in Cupertino in the coming months.
