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.
Pricing for the new offering hasn’t been announced, but it will also include television service. Google hasn’t begun rolling out Fiber in Austin, and it hasn’t announced pricing there either. Google charges $70 a month for its gigabit internet connection alone and $120 a month for its internet plus television package. It also offers a “free” 300 mbps internet service for a one-time construction fee of $300.
