    Only if they run it all the way north to where she's at in Idaho. LOL

    Why am I thinking she's in Utah?

    Well, Leon, thanks for thinking about me. I left SLC 14 years ago this July. Utah was where I was when we first "met" on CompuServe way back in 1993 or 1994. I think you came on that forum after I did. I was there from May 1993.

    San Antonio is in progress, although I'm sure it will be quite a while before it's available

    Come on. Gigabit service for 70 bucks a month?! He'd be a fool not to!

    It will be the next century before it gets to my little enclave. We can't even have cable here, just satellite, although both are available in town. I see Louisville is on the list of places to be served. I have two stepkids there.

    San Antonio is the last city they're going to finish the roll out in, and even that looks to be on hold due to the City Council putting a halt to things due to residential complaints about the huts. Seems some think they're ugly and want Google to make "pretty buildings".

    Don't know what happened to this city since I last lived here, but it looks like we've been infiltrated by a bunch of idiots from Austin.

    Would you believe it, fiber is in Moscow, Idaho. I take back that "next century" remark I made earlier. My own ISP offers it. but it is probably used mostly by businesses, the hospital, etc., at this time.

    Salt Lake City is exponentially significantly increasing its diversity, population and smog. It's only logical Fiber be added to the mix.

    They have dreadful inversions in the winter. I remember one that lasted for weeks. It's been nearly 15 years since we left for our current abode.
