Our neighborhood (Parkside at Mayfield Ranch) was one of the hoods selected to get Gigapower broadband when AT&T rolled it out. We were pretty jazzed about that, but since its launch most (and more often than not all) of our neighborhood has lost internet no less than five times for as short as several hours to as much as a week. One house lost it for about 10 days a month ago.

Does anyone else have gigapower in another area? If so, is yours stable or does it go down all the time like ours?

While the speeds are insane when it does work, it's seriously disappointing (and a financial burden since my wife telecommutes) that it's so ridiculously undependable.

The competition is catching up little by little. Grande now features 110 Mbps internet speed. For most uses, including streaming video, that's as much as most folks need at the present time.

Has anyone had any other issues or experiences good or bad with this service lately? I live over in Pflugerville in a newer division which has AT&T gigapower. Honestly, I would probably go with google or grande but the coverage maps are so small and it doesn't look like they are going to be expanding that quickly. I think the service costs around 140 with cable TV and they offer 3 year rate locks with a one year contract.
