I believe many of us would pay more for faster connection such as 20/20 or 50/20 by verizon or 20/20, 50/50 from surewest fios
Its pretty close to what the advance nation offered that are fiber wired... only a fraction of it thought
I heard that speed of 100/100, 50/50 and 25/25 are offered in these location so their pricing is as follow... 40 bucks, 30 bucks and 20 bucks
Here we have crappy DSL offering crap speed of 6/512k-768k for 35 bucks, 3/512k for 30bucks, 1.5/384k for 25 dollars and 768/384k for 20 dollars
A world of difference! a night and day comparison!
DSL, and Cable Internet in fiber optic country is like dialup vs broadband

Of course laying that much Fiber would be sweet, but I doubt everyone would be willing to pull it off.
For now, we have our Coaxial Cable lines and our (old as hell) twisted pair lines.
At least Coax can support faster speeds. The Telcos are trying their best to push as much as they can with old technology and they scratch their heads when it backfires on them.
I think the Telcos should lay Fiber and ditch their copper pairs.
