It appears that gigabit internet is starting to gain popularity in the United States. While it is still at a much lower rate of deployment compared to standard broadband, it is gaining over the past few years. Major companies such as AT&T and Comcast have introduced gigabit internet in selected markets, while Google Fiber is also gaining ground.
Another company has now joined the gigabit party. Atlantic Broadband, a company that is based in states like New Hampshire and Maine, is now rolling out gigabit internet to many of its customers.
While the gigabit internet is the dream speed for many users, customers will be happy to know that other speeds are also being offered. What it means is that an average customer should see a lower internet bill, especially if are happy with their current speed.
A lot of work goes into creating a gigabit network. It is why the rollout is so slow, despite the technology already being there. Everything from broadband power dividers to other equipment must be laid out to ensure that such speeds can be supported by the network.

Areas such as Farmington, Milton, New Durham and Barrington are getting the higher speeds in New Hampshire. Cities such as West Newfield and Lebanon are receiving gigabit internet in Maine.
