MILWAUKEE — AT&T announced Monday, December 7th it is planning to expand the availability of ultra-fast speeds through  AT&T GigaPowerSM to homes, apartments and small businesses in parts of 38 additional metros across the United States, which will total at least 56 metros served, including in the Milwaukee area.

With the launch of ultra-fast Internet service in parts of two of these metros Monday – Los Angeles and West Palm Beach – AT&T GigaPower is now available in 20 of the nation’s largest metro areas.

    NOT great news… you are much better off waiting for Google Fiber. AT&T has DATA LIMITS even on this new service… they live in the STONE AGE. The data limits on the new service are 1TB per month and they charge $10 per extra 50gig beyond that. This is in the FINE PRINT they do not want you to read. THINK TWICE about this service.
