Chattanooga, Tennessee is now host to the world's fastest Internet, which clocks in at 10Gbps. The service comes courtesy of local Internet service provider EBP, which introduced citywide 1GB/s service in 2010. They dub the service "NextNet."

The 10Gbps service will cost you $299 per month, compared to the $69.99 1Gbps service. Two other cities -- Springfield, Vermont and Salisbury, North Carolina -- started offering 10Gbps service this year, but Chattanooga, with 170,000 customers, has the highest potential adoption rate.

 

The city and company are hoping the news will attract tech startups to the region. Another motivator is Comcast, which recently introduced 2Gbps service for $159/mo to residents.
