    Download a full-length movie in 30 seconds or download 25 songs in one second. That's some of what you'll be able to do when Gigafiber comes to Cupertino.

    AT&T officials said Cupertino will be the first city in California to have the Gigafiber service.

    Gigafiber, which provides Internet speeds of a gigabit per second, promises to boost Cupertino homes and small businesses, like Philz Coffee, into the speed stratosphere.

    If area businesses are willing to pay and plug in, their Internet speeds will soar. But it won't come cheap -- access to Gigafiber will likely cost around $70 to $90 per month.

    AT&T said it will likely take up to six months before Gigafiber is in place.
