Here’s a fun fact for you: Most Americans enjoy Internet speeds half that of South Korea and way below many European countries.

So AT&T announced that it is rolling out a new Internet service in Austin and Miami, which will deliver speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second for customers, the fastest in the country. The service will be available to households in Austin and next city will be Miami. For Miami in particular, this will be another incentive for tech companies to consider the city as a possible hub for their businesses.

“With the AT&T GigaPower network our customers can stream and download video and music faster than ever before. It will change the way they navigate the web, interact with social media, and complete business transactions. Austin and surrounding communities are once again at the forefront of exciting technology innovation,” explains Dave Nichols, president of AT&T Texas in a recent interview.

AT&T will go head-to-head with Google Fiber in Austin.
