75mbps by 2013?

Two months to do this?

That being said... I'm glad they're doing it. My parents only have a measly 1.5mbps DSL connection (and it disconnects all of the time) at home. Where I live, I can get either a local municipally owned ISP (cable) - 10/1 for $34/mo. I personally have 30/2 for $54/mo, though.

That being said, if I could get their U-Verse IPDSLAM service I would be ecstatic. I'd gladly welcome in 24/3 for the higher upload speed, or even 45/6 or whatever projected upstream plan they have.

Definitely wasn't there when I posted :P
I figured it was a typo, though.

Probably in Texas.

Why don't they just get cable then faster speed and stability? My parents' new place and neighbors have crappy 1 Mb/sec Verizon DSL services (no FIOS in this rural area), but they all got Time Warner Cable services and now happier. It's funny how neighbors copied the new house owners.

They don't have cable available. Charter, the incumbent cable ISP, completely skipped the neighborhood years ago. Probably a disagreement with the HoA.

Oh that sucks! Get HoA to get cable!
