MINNETONKA, MN — US Internet, a global Internet and data services provider, announced the launch of the 10 Gbps Internet speed service for residential and small business users in the Minneapolis area, effective immediately. The service is being offered at $300 per month.

This move makes Minneapolis, in which CenturyLink already offers 1 Gbps speeds, the most highly competitive fiber-based Internet market in the nation.

“The launch of our 10 Gbps Internet service will make Minneapolis the first city in the world to receive access to Internet at speeds never before experienced in our country, or any other country for that matter, both in terms of 10 Gbps download and upload speeds,” said Joe Caldwell, co-CEO of US Internet. “US Internet has long advocated for small business owners and residential customers that they deserve the same broadband as Fortune 100 companies. With our new fiber network, we have redefined what is considered broadband internet and taken our speed capabilities to next-gen levels, resulting in the fastest Internet service the world has ever seen for home users. Now, Minneapolis residents will have more Internet bandwidth in their houses than some countries have serving their entire country.”
