"AT&T to launch ultra-fast home Internet service in Milwaukee in 2016"

From JSOnline:

By Rick Barrett of the Journal Sentinel

"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."
