Google-fibre-tourism? Why not try Linode instead?

+1.

Google-fibre-tourism is a funny idea, but seems kinda useless in reality indeed: if you want a fast connection, you can usually get one at work (if you work for a good tech company), or just rent a Linode or something.

All Linode's have an unmetered 1Gbps downstream connection by default; upstream is metered, and by default limited to 50Mbps IIRC, presumably to ensure you don't run out of your allocated bandwidth all too soon, and 50Mbps of upstream is still plenty!

So, for only 20$/month, you can already do virtual Google-Fibre-like-tourism without having to travel into the middle of nowhere.
