They should start in Ottawa, preferably within my neighbourhood, where the services are on overhead lines so the buildout will be cheap.
Two summers ago I watched some technicians run fiber cable for Bell behind my house. A couple of months ago, Bell finally made fiber to the home available in my neighbourhood, a full two years after running the fiber cable. Of course, the primary motivation for this rollout is to provide Fibe TV, the internet plans that use real fiber are ridiculously overpriced. If Bell can affort to roll this stuff out at whatever rate of adoption there is around here, I have no doubt Google could afford to do the same.
I signed the petition, hopefully this will help to get their attention. We can certainly use some competition from a company that is focused on providing top-tier internet services to their customers.
