St. Louis! Lay it out down I-70 East!!!

...but then again, everything between Kansas City and St. Louis on I-70 is rural as all hell...

Why not California? The fastest internet option in my area is 160kbs, which uses radio dishes.

Denver! We NEED and alternative to Comcast or Century Link. Both our existing ISPs are horrid. Please, please, PLEASE come to Denver!

1% to 30% packet loss and 400-1800ms latency on my 20 Mb/s down 8 Mb/s up connection ($55 monthly), if the connection is stressed beyond 50% of the bandwidth.

The only other ISP in the area charges $110 monthly, for a 4 Mb/s down and 64 Kb/s up connection.

Perhaps they should go to some of the runner up cities next such as Duluth? Yeah, Duluth would be nice ;)

PITTSBURGH


actually, they should probably hook up the entire midwest. that would greatly boost USA's national average.

Google Fiber makes me sad because I know it'll never come to my area. My area sucks for internet, I'm paying for $40 a month for Verizon DSL, 1.5 mbits/sec and my latency is often as high as 300ms and here I am trying to game on this crappy connection. So much lag!
