HOUSTON –- AT&T says its U-verse customers in Houston will soon be able to order home Internet speeds of up to 45 megabits per second.

Starting Sept. 29, the “U-verse High Speed Internet Power” plan will be the fastest speed in town for the price, according to the company.

Currently, the fastest plan is the "Max Turbo," which has a speed of 24 Mbps.

The Power plan is available to new customers for as low as $49.95 for up to 24 months. Current customers can upgrade their package and get $10 off their bill for 12 months.

“This is our next step in our Project VIP investment plan, and we’re proud to bring customers faster speeds, for a great value,” said Dahna Hull, vice president and general manager, AT&T South Texas. “The vast majority of our customers bundle U-verse Internet and TV because it gives them a better experience, with faster speeds that fit their needs, at an affordable price. We look forward to bringing wired IP services and faster speeds to more customers in the future.”

Internet providers across the country have been revamping their offerings in the last year as Google Fiber’s 1-gigabit service continues to expand in select cities.

Comcast? AT&T? Something else? It can be difficult to decide. I always recommend you talk to your neighbors. I find Internet service can vary from neighborhood to neighborhood depending on the age of the infrastructure.
