To date, you can't show evidence that Google, Sonic, Surewest, or anyone else has found a way to lower the real cost of FTTH deployment, and their $70/month price-points for fiber speeds reflects it.
That would be $70 for 1Gb Internet. Seems most in Sebastopol, California are choosing the $39.95 100Mb service:
If its available in more than a few zipcodes, then my hat's off to Dane, as it would appear that he has, indeed, found a way to install and deliver FTTH profitably, at a lower price point, apparently, without requiring Google-style special-treatment from the local municipalities.
In which case, other firms should be quick to follow suit, and we should all soon enjoy FTTH cheap.
Good find. Don't know how I missed that, amid all the "$70 Gigabit" headlines.
Google should take note and offer similar in KC.
