AT&T's gigabit internet arrives in Apple's backyard

A street sign for Apple's Infinite Loop in Cupertino

It’s official: AT&T is offering full-fledged gigabit internet service in Silicon Valley before Google. After months of teasing, the telecom has launched its U-verse GigaPower service in Cupertino, Apple’s home turf — and a quick drive away from Google’s headquarters, we’d add. Get ready to pony up if you’re in the area, though. Gigabit access costs $110 per month by itself, and that’s if you agree to AT&T’s Internet Preferences (read: targeted ads). In other cities, it costs as little as $70. Still, this may hit the sweet spot if you’re a local tech worker who just can’t wait to download the latest test releases.
