    That's one way to increase the Nexus 7 tablet market share.

    I wish Google would come to my village. The only company that covers my area is TalkTalk, and even though I pay for 2Mb, I get 128kbps at the very best. :(

    Time to Move?

    Is it bad that I am seriously contemplating moving there just for the connection?

    And what are the expansion plans beyond Kansas City? Is this a service they are wanting to roll out across the country or will it just remain a perk of being in that area?

    Hope this spreads quickly I pay for 15mbps speeds where I live but I have seen it fluctuates between 2 and 8 Mbps on a good day

    Hey, at least you're not in a tease situation like I am. My neighbors on both sides of me have fiber.

    Me? Hell no. They haven't lit the line up to my house yet.

    Talk Talk are truly terrible....I was with them before VM cabled our lane...The excuse they always gave when I complained about the speed was that it's free (if you have a phone package with them, which I still do) It's poor that so many areas of the UK and the USA are still without FIOS coverage. It took VM years to get around to us, even though we are on the outskirts of a major city.
