Comcast says it plans on bringing faster internet speeds to Atlanta’s Ponce City Market.

The announcement came after news that Google is opening up a Fiber Space in the mixed-use development located off of Ponce de Leon Avenue.

According to Comcast, six PCM businesses have signed up for the service.

“Comcast Business provides 10-gigabit internet speeds throughout Atlanta, and completed a major network expansion in December 2014,” a press release from the company says. “Most recently, Comcast announced it would bring 10-gigabit speeds to businesses in Stockbridge and in Alpharetta, along the Georgia 400 Business Corridor.”

It’s the latest development in a tit for tat between the two internet companies.

In January 2015, Google Fiber announced plans to expand to the Atlanta area. The planning and build out phase for nine cities – Atlanta, Avondale Estates, Brookhaven, College Park, Decatur, East Point, Hapeville, Sandy Springs and Smyrna – was expected to take at least two years.

Google is offering internet speeds of 1 gigabit per second, or 1,000 megabits per second. For comparison, the average speed in the U.S. is 11.5 megabits per second. Other service providers – namely Comcast and At&T – have been working to increase their internet speeds after Google announced plans to move into the Atlanta market.
