Fort Worth, Arlington, Euless and Haltom City are among 100 cities nationwide being targeted by AT&T for expansion of its ultra-fast fiber network called GigaPower, which it says is 10 times faster than its fastest broadband service.

The network, available through AT&T’s U-verse service, can deliver broadband speeds of up to one gigabit a second to consumers and businesses. AT&T said the service allows users to download 25 average-length songs in one second, a 30-minute television show in three seconds, and a two-hour, high-definition movie in 36 seconds.
