Finally coming online by end of year. $40 for 100mbs.

Right now I pay $30 for 6mbs from the same company that is putting in the fiber. They are literally boring the wire right now around the neighborhood. Horizontal drilling is a beautiful thing.

Good for you, Ike.

We have a local company that offers it but they will only do it if the street signs up. So needless to say, I'm screwed. Everyone will never switch from Comcast.

I assume AT&T in Madison? They kill me. They just put the fiber in our neighborhood but they want $90 per month. Much as I dislike Comcast, for now I'll stay with their $65 for 25Mbs.

It's TDS Metrocom.

I have talked to their techs... as far as they know, it actually is ATT that is paying to install the fiber, but TDS just leases the lines from them.

But that is what makes ATT such a joke. They can lease their service much less than they can give it to their customers directly.

Whatever. All of it is bullshit because there is so little competition. ISP services are a joke in America. You have next to zero options. It's not free market, it is stockholm syndrome.
