By Journal Sentinel of the
"AT&T Inc. says it will begin offering ultra-fast home Internet
service, aimed at customers with online demands such as downloading
videos and teleconferencing, in the Milwaukee area in 2016.
"Milwaukee will be one of 38 metro markets
to receive the gigabit service to homes, apartments and small
businesses sometime next year, AT&T said Monday.
"The GigaPower service will give customers
a 1-gigabit per second broadband connection, which is about 50 times
faster than what many people have at home.
"That's enough speed to download 25 songs
in a second, a TV show in less than three seconds or a high-definition
movie in 36 seconds.
"Milwaukee will be AT&T's first
GigaPower city in Wisconsin, although the company currently offers
gigabit speeds to large businesses, office buildings and business parks
in the metro area.
"The company did not disclose the specific
time frame for the rollout next year and did not identify which
neighborhoods will receive the service. It also did not announce a
price, but GigaPower in some cities costs about $120 a month."
