ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Internet power users who have a need for more cable Internet speed now can subscribe to UltraLink service, a new level of AT&T Broadband Internet, the company announced today. The faster broadband Internet residential service is being launched today in Dallas, Denver, Salt Lake City, San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, St. Paul and communities in the company's Michigan and Rocky Mountain markets. The UltraLink service is a faster cable Internet speed that will be offered in addition to the company's current service. The new tier will allow customers to surf at maximum speeds capped at 3 Mbps downstream and 384 kbps upstream for $79.99 per month. The service costs $82.99 per month for customers who lease a modem from the company. The company expects to launch the service in other markets later this summer. These markets include: Atlanta, Florida, Pittsburgh, Portland, Richmond and Southern California. Chicago, Central California and the Northeast markets will launch the UltraLink level of service later this year after the company completes various ongoing system upgrades that are a prerequisite to offering ISP choice, standard upstream speeds and tiered Internet speeds in addition to other enhancements. Later this year, the company plans to trial a lower speed tier of AT&T Broadband Internet service geared toward consumers who are looking to upgrade from a dial-up connection and want the power of a constant broadband connection.
