    Fucking marketing horseshit. Yeah, pay 10 bucks, get everyone you know to sign up and pay 10 bucks and then we might do it.

    I don't even get what it is. Are they going to start offering internet services, or are they just speeding up the network and you keep your ISP?

    I do hope something new comes in to replace the Cable companies.

    It does sound like a good deal, but it's $70 ++** month for Gigabit service and $120 ++** for Gigabit and TV.

    and they make you agree that you have to pay their legal bills if you rent and your landlord doesn't want the line in your place.

    Let me know if suckers fall for this and it works. I don't see people signing up for shit before it's out and paying $10 for a maybe.

    I looked at the map of planned cities and I think there are more cattle per sq mile than people.
