Eh, saw this one coming a mile away. The "need" for the ridiculously high speeds that Fiber presents is really limited. Even considering the billed "tech hub" of KCMO; those tech startups don't need higher speed service than what the existing cable/DSL infrastructure can provide. In this stix I can get 120/30 service which more than suits my needs even online backup approaching the TB range.
