AT&T says it intends to offer 1-gigabit internet service to homes and businesses in St. Louis, in mid-2015. The phone company has struggled to gain Internet market share against cable company Charter, its prime competitor throughout most of the St. Louis area.

Charter in June announced that was tripling customer Internet speeds to 100 megabits at no extra charge. CenturyLink, which serves parts of western St. Charles and Lincoln counties, began offering 1-gigabit service in Jefferson City and Columbia in August. And Google offers gigabit service in the Kansas City area.

At that speed, users can download a TV show in less than three seconds and an HD movie in 36 seconds. Customers could watch five Internet-streaming HD movies at once.
