    That would precipitate a move on your part Bob................ Something I've been suggesting since we met. Time to Man Up: Tie the little woman on top of the trunk of your car ala Granny / Beverly Hillbillies style and hit the elusive road. Head South till you wander into decent connectivity. She might throw a "Granny Fit" at first, but once you've relocated, she'll be fine. This is the way men have always done it, since the beginning of time:

    Time Warner is all but ready for the switch I think. They just changed their channel line-up today to free up the spectrum on the cable for the higher speeds.

    Also, the Google Fiber internet box is nothing more than Google's shitty router. They install a fiber to ethernet transceiver in your home, that's what really gives you the access to the fiber. If you can set 802.1q and 802.1p tags on a switch and/or router you can chunk that thing in the garbage (where it belongs according to Google Fiber users in KC).

    I also wouldn't count on Google Fiber hitting Cedar Park this year, and probably not next year either. Currently Google is only doing Fiber in the Austin City Limits, and currently their focus within the city limits has been South Lamar and Manchaca Rd. It will take much longer before they get the entire city covered.

    Yeah... I think you might be right. KC is experiencing all kinds of delays. Right now all I care about is 300 x 20. Lvl 3 tech told me August.

    We have suddenlink(owned by TWC I believe) but it's only for tv, no cable internet services. Regardless, 90% of the th market is dominated by Dish and Directv... And 90% of the isp market is dominated by centurylink dsl, only other options are satellite and dial-up (yes that still exists)
