I noticed several centurylink trucks parked down the street for several days with workers putting in a new terminal so i stopped to ask what it was about.
The were just finishing having run fiber from the CO to this terminal.
They calim the fiber is capable of 40 Mbs, of course that is if you pay for it.
Right now CL offer 12 Mbs of speed for 19.99. I presume that having fiber to within 100 yards of my house could be nothing but beneficial?
