Faster internet speeds could be on the way for the state of Missouri, as broadband services look to compete with Google Fiber.

AT&T announced a new Kansas City-area broadband service with speeds and pricing it hopes will be competitive.

The company is calling the fiber optic packages GigaPower and they will be available to both homes and business in downtown Kansas City and a handful of suburbs.

Google first introduced its Google Fiber service in Kansas City, Kansas in 2011, but the network became available on the Missouri side of the border in 2012.

The company’s introduction of Google Fiber into seven cities in the U.S. has fostered competition among rival broadband providers.
