I have the cheapest ("free") service, and I like it. First time I've been free of AT&T since 1971.

I don't use the internet but the Google TV is great. I got it because it's not Time Warner.

Anyone including Rogers who are buying into and supporting this whole Google Fiber farce are basically brainwashed idiots.

And on what facts are you basing this opinion, 9:23?

Google Fiber is the preferred platform for streaming my 1982 magnum opus 'Fitzcarraldo'.

Eric and his organization, BikeWalkKC, do a lot to promote bicycling in this area. But they have expanded their focus to include the toy train.

A toy train supporter as well, then lets tar and feather his ass.

Google what?

Strange that a bike advocate organization would promote the streetcar. Bicycles and trolleys don't mix.

We need to hear from somebody who has it whether the so-called free Google fiber option is fast enough for streaming video/movie viewing.

it's not completely free ... it costs a one-time payment of $300, but once you've paid that (all at once or in monthly installments), it is free. Not a bad deal if it's fast enough (it IS slower than the more expensive options) and if you can afford the payment.

9:23 supporters are bought and paid for politicians. Google tosses a few bucks around town and they get whatever they want.
