Ultrafast’ 10Gbps internet to be rolled out in the US

24 Dec 2014

Parts of Minneapolis are receiving ‘the world’s fastest’ internet speeds from fibre-optic broadband provider US Internet as of yesterday. The Minnetonka-based operator is using its network, currently serving around 30,000 homes in southwest Minneapolis, to offer subscribers access to speeds of 10Gbps, around 400 times faster than the average (25Mbps) in Minnesota. Joe Caldwell, co-CEO at US Internet says: ‘The fastest internet in the world is going to be here in Minneapolis starting this afternoon … We’re talking about a game-changing speed.’ The provider intends to expand the 10Gbps speeds eastwards in mid-2015, with services costing USD399 per month.
