EPB Fiber Optics (Chattanooga's municipally-owned fiber-to-the-premises network) and Alcatel-Lucent have teamed up to offer America's "fastest" home broadband service -- a service that brings 1Gbps (or 1000Mbps, if that strikes you better) directly to your PC. Best of all, the service is actually on sale starting today, and every single home and business within EPB's 600 square-mile, nine-county service area will be able to access the network.
The $350 per month price is reasonable considering that this type of epic broadband will likely be shared among a group. For seven people it's a cheap $50-a-month rate.
I certainly would not mind that arrangement. Not at all.
