It was a private network that was intended to be used for the towns government (why they need so much bandwith, who knows). But from what i've heard they are looking to expand it and bring in a provider who can connect with them and provide fiber to everyone else.

My TWC Maxx finally got switched on. Will have to tide me over until El Goog rolls out that sweet sauce.

I called in and threatened to leave TWC a couple weeks ago. They gave me a free upgrade, so I should be getting 300/20.

If these become fiberhoods, I wonder how far they are out from service?

I saw a Google Fiber-marked (said something like "Project Manager") car driving around my neighborhood really slowly the other day. September would be 20 months, which is how long it took in Austin for fiberhood signups to open.

^^Do they enforce the 1 TB cap? I'm at 900 GB for last 30 days, which I feel is less than my usual usage. Plus I'd almost certainly use more if I had fiber.

The installer for my ATT was sure to point out the data cap for what its worth. The data cap goes away though if you have uverse tv as well. So far max I have pulled is 81 MB/s which is pretty amazing to see haha.

^^^Thanks, that's a big help. Those are awesome speeds, but I'll probably pass as I haven't had TV in years. Unless TWC/Charter (w/e they're called now) starts capping before Fiber comes out.

Updated speeds... pulled 111 MB/s off steam last night downloading a game stayed over 100 MB/s for a fair amount of time as well so wasnt just a quick spike. Seeing as 125 would be my theoretical cap thats pretty damn amazing.

Orange and red dig lines all over my neighborhood...figure (read: hope) that means fiber is coming my way soon.

I'm assuming it's AT&T, but I'll take what I can get

[Edited on July 26, 2016 at 8:25 PM. Reason : for those that have Gigapower and cable service do you have to get Direct TV? No uVerse allowed?]

^ You don't have to get Direct TV according to their site.

Also, read all the terms and conditions for Gigapower. They're terrible.

^ It's all on the gigapower website. Here's my info from another post:
Quote :
"It's $70 per month for the first year then it jumps to $100 per month (I think). It's an extra $30 per month if you don't want a data cap. You don't get the promotional rate at all if you don't consent to tracking and injection of targeted ads. You also share bandwidth with your TV which is something to keep in mind if you have multiple TVs going at the same time. You're also locked into a yearly contract with a hefty early termination fee."
