    For such speed that is a very reasonable price for a business line.

    I would pay for it for my house. In fact I can tell my sister to go half on it.
  4. It would be nice if they increased their roll-out by a factor of 10!! Bring in some real competition and see how the rest of the ISP react!

    Lobby the FCC to take Google to court for Monopolistic practices and driving everyone else out of town? oh wait....

    I for one would welcome our new internet overlords with open arms if they made it into my area. :p

    Amazing! with so much of the rest of the world enjoying 100 mps over the past twenty years, we are finally catching up. I still remember the AT&T promise that they would "blanket the US with fiber" .... I guess that must be a new word for BS since that's what we got! Thank you Google!

    And ATT announced today they have halted their fiber/Gbit rollout. North KC (separate town from KC) has FREE gigabit for all residents, that's about as cheap as Gbit gets. Was paid for with casino money.

    Unsmart price and the fact they could just install wifi without running cables.

    How it is unsmart? This is for small businesses, seems like a great price to me. Businesses can't accept the caveats of wifi like low or no signal zones and unstable connections, you need wired for that.
