[Cnet] Google Fiber copycat to deliver 1Gbps broadband in Mississippi

Regional wireless provider C Spire is using the Google Fiber playbook to deliver ultra high-speed broadband in Mississippi. The move could signal a trend in which other companies use the Google business model to bring fiber to other regions of the US.

Forgot Source FYI.

Really wish comcrap would give us better speeds as well. Down speed is fine, but the up speed is pathetic. Now that Google Drive has dirt cheap storage I'm using it for offsite backup encrypted storage. However it takes all freaking day almost to upload the 30GB.
