I have an 800 mile long Cat6a cable. I will gladly pay $10 a month to plug it into someone's router.

Do you like Netflix?

Do you like Netflix in HD? On every TV, computer, phone, and tablet in your house? At the same time?

Damn, I'd totally buy into that.

If not just to support another ISP to act as direct competition. Honestly, 1Gbps down is a bit extreme for me these days, now that I have money to just buy PC games and streaming typically never runs out of buffer on whatever I'm watching. It's just the aspect of having another option there, another good option, that I want to see more of.

Part of me feels like the other ISPs will get lobbyists together to somehow make Google's ISP unconstitutional or something.

But in the down side it's only available(for now) in KCK and not the rest of the metro. So upside super awesome internet, down side you live in KCK and will probably be shot soon.
