Ready, set, download. No more frustration about buffering

Malaysiah Phillips gets annoyed with her slow internet connection, but relief is on the way. Faster internet speeds are now in Memphis thanks to AT&T Fiber.

"Who does not like faster internet service of faster movies to download," Phillips said.

AT&T is installing a one gigabit internet connection at $80 a month in Memphis, Arlington, Collierville and Germantown. There are plans on expanding the service to Bartlett and Southaven.

These faster internet speeds mean you can download 25 songs in a second or your favorite 90 minute movie in 34 seconds.

Phil Trenary is the CEO for the Greater Memphis Chamber of Commerce. He said this high speed internet is also vital in bringing businesses to Memphis. It's a move that could turn the Bluff City into America's next "it" city.

"It's that last piece that we really need because we have all the infrastructure we need in terms of the airport, the roads, the river," Trenary said.

It's a piece Phillips can't wait to get her fingers on.
