My version of "as soon as possible" equates to the same as "in a few weeks/months" - from what I've heard so far, the product is not stable enough for release.
The American cities that are delivering best-in-the-world speeds at bargain prices are precisely the cities that aren't relying on Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Time-Warner, etc. to run their infrastructure. In Kansas City, Google built a state-of-the-art fiber optic network largely just to prove a point. In Chattanooga and Lafayette, the government did it. At the moment, the US federal government could issue 5-year bonds at a 1.58 percent interest rate and make grants to cities interested in following Chattanooga and Lafayette down that path. But it doesn't happen, because while broadband incumbents don't want to spend the money it would take to build state-of-the-art fiber networks, they are happy to spend money on lobbying.

Do you have any idea how excited I got at hearing that Jobs wouldn't be returning to this country? Apple fanbois all over the U.S. would cry themselves to death!
Of course, if this REALLY happened, the headline of "No more Jobs in the U.S." might prove catastrophic! lol
Hehehe Oops! I meant uh.... Open Sarcasm's alt+U0161!! Honest!
It seems to me that this is just moving further in the FBI's renewed interest under Obama to go after file-sharers without the need of the courts prove their need. Everybody knows file-sharers are terrorists in disguise, anyway.
ACTA is failing on a worldwide scale, so why not make sure they can move forward in other - easier - ways?
Somebody made you eat a SarcMark for breakfast this morning, didn't they?
