• by Matthew Gault

AT&T announced Monday that it will roll out an internet service that can hit upload and download speeds of 5 Gbps in more than 70 metro areas, which would be the most widely available ultra-fast internet service in the United States.

According to a press release on AT&T's website, "nearly 5.2 million customer locations in parts of more than 70 metro areas, such as L.A., Atlanta and Dallas, will be able to take advantage of symmetrical 2-Gig and 5-Gig speed tiers." The plans begin rolling out today. There's four plans in total—a 2GB plan that costs $110 a month or a 5GB plan for $225. Business alternatives of the same plans cost $225 and $395 respectively.
