I live in what's considered a rural area and just had Charter Spectrum out to fix an outage that started late last night. I've been paying $66/mo for 100/10 and I asked the tech about gigabit, which he told me is now available in my area. He also told me the cost to upgrade was $240 installation fee for what amounts to swapping out the modem, above and beyond the higher monthly fees. That's using the existing copper lines, btw.
He also mentioned that FIOS will be running fiber through my area which will allow for 5-10 gigabit in the near future.
While I don't need faster speeds at this point in time, it's nice to know they are available.
