AT&T eventually stepping up to match Googles Gigabit Fiber but only in a City Where Google Fiber is offered

Earlier this year, Google announced that Austin, Texas would be the second city to receive its ultra-fast Google Fiber service, and AT and T isn’t far behind. It quickly followed Google’s announcement with news that it too would offer gigabit fiber internet in the city, and today, the telecoms giant detailed what the service will look like.

Starting in December, some Austin residents will be able to order the company’s AT&T U-verse with GigaPowerSM. At first, the service will provide only 300 Mbps speeds, but the company promises an upgrade to a full 1 gigabit connection in the middle of next year.

AT and T’s eventual gigabit offering has no announced pricing and does not have a committed deployment schedule.
