AT&T brings 300Mbps fiber internet to Austin in December, gigabit by ‘mid-2014’

DNP AT&T brings gigabit fiber to Austin, Texas

Now that AT&T is actually laying down fiber-optic line in Austin, we have yet another reason to be jealous of Texas’ weird city.

According to Ma Bell, “tens of thousands” will be getting 300Mbps downloads (and uploads), the “fastest internet speeds available” in town to the general public, come December. Those subscribers can snag a free upgrade to gigabit service — GigaPower, as the company calls it — when it’s available in the middle of next year. Oh, and if you want a say in where the ultra-fast service travels, make your neighborhood proud by voting at AT&T’s website.

For some reason though, we don’t imagine Google will be casting any ballots.
