There are now 27 cities in the United States that offer gigabit Internet, according to CNNMoney. As recently as last year, the number of cities offering the speedy service languished at two, but 2014 has seen gigabit networks move into 25 more cities across the country. AT&T, Google, and CenturyLink remain the biggest companies behind this rapid growth.
Although the technology still awaits full utilization, its potential is vast, and companies are scrambling to inject the super-fast Internet through existing copper-based infrastructures. So even if you’re not getting the full gigabit treatment, chances are if you’re in one of the aforementioned cities your Internet speeds will be ramping up dramatically in the future.
