Symmetric 1 Gb/s Personal Networks In The USA: They're Here!

Sorry for not posting yesterday, but once again there wasn't any real news and I couldn't quite bring myself to make another blank post. I still went around most people's pages although I was kinda lazy and didn't comment. (sorry for those I missed, I fell asleep on the keyboard) But today we actually have some news!

(CNN) -- If you want the fastest internet connection in America, it may be wise to skip Silicon Valley and New York. Instead, look to southern Tennessee.

The unlikely city of Chattanooga says it began offering one-gigabit-per-second internet upload and download speeds Monday, a rate it says is the fastest in the United States -- and 250 times the average internet speed in the nation.

The city says the move is an investment in the future.

"It's like any other leading technology, people will invent ways to use it," said Ron Littlefield, mayor of the city of 170,000. "And having it here will bring those inventive minds to focus in Chattanooga."

 Personally I think that price is a bit steep since you can get T1/T3 for about the same, and the same service in Tokyo costs between 40-50$. I think that the overinflated price point will drive away those who would be interested in the service. Also as a side note I would be interested to know how strict they are about torrenting, because lets face it, currently thats the only real reason why civilians would need 1Gb/S upload.

  7. You say it's over priced but you don't actually say how much it costs. I still wish I had internets like this.
