AT&T says it will expand super-fast Internet services to as many as 100 cities in 25 metropolitan areas.

The service's 1-gigabit per second speed is about 100 times what American consumers typically get with broadband. That means faster video downloads and the ability for more devices to connect to the network without congestion.

AT&T has such speeds in Austin and has committed to offer the service in Dallas. A rival offering from Google Inc. is available in Kansas City and will soon be available in Austin and Provo, Utah.
