Comment Yeah... meanwhile in Tennessee (Score 1) 91

They "ran" fiber into my "neighborhood". So what really happened was, they put in a hub near Lee university. Then came around "selling" the residents of the area on how great the service is. /sarc/ For only $70 a month + installation fees, (re: running the actual fiber from the hub to my house via telephone poles" you get a whopping 18MB down with an amazing 4MB up connection! What a deal! /sarc/. The kid who came by trying to sell me the service just couldn't understand the concept that my cable connection was faster. I had to give him an analogy. I drive a dodge, you drive a ferrari. You COULD go 150mph down the highway, but, the state decided to put in new speed limit signs: Ferraris: 18mph, all other cars 55mph.
