Here in WV there are companies that specialize in running fiber to new markets. We rent space to a company that's strung fiber to places out in the rural community. I'm 8 miles out in the county and in an area where there's no cable or DSL service and now high speed internet is within 3 1/2 miles of my home. The closest person to have it is the man I work for and he's got 100mbps/6mbps service right now. I figured I'd be dead and gone before I saw it at my house, but now I'm more optimistic. I've spoke with the guy who mapped out this area and he's saying it will be where I live within the next year. I hope so, I'm sick to death of this horrible wireless internet service. I can barely get my email most of the time, let alone stream and at $39.95 a month, it's no bargain. 100mbps looks like a dream to me at this point.
