If your "need for speed" includes your internet connection, imagine having an online connection that is about 100 times what most people in the country get with their typical broadband service. That's what AT&T is planning to offer soon.

The service is called GigaPower and features a 1 gigabit per second speed. Without getting into the details, it means you'll be able to download videos faster as well as hook up more devices to your home network without having the service bog down.

AT&T currently has GigaPower speed in Austin, Texas, and has committed to offer the service in Dallas. In all, the company plans to roll out the service in as many as 100 municipalities in 25 metropolitan areas.
