The city has been working to bolster internet speeds for quite some time and now it appears that there may be numerous companies getting ready to jump into this market. The more the merrier as competition is good for the consumer but as a loyal ATT& T Uverse guy, I say kudos to AT&T for being the first in the Dunwoody market.
