They need to bring that to NC. Raleigh is notorious for being a "tech center" with shitty internet. I'd sign up for it.

Jigga What!

Yes, I'm signed up, and my fiberhood has qualified for connection. Ward Parkway North passed it's 10% quota, and is sitting in 10th place at 14%. I would expect to be near 25% when the pre-reg period is over.

I also toured the Google Fiber demo space in midtown, and this shit seriously flies. Keep in mind that you don't get gigabit speed on wireless since wireless doesn't run that fast yet. So only your hard wired computers will hit those speeds. But it's incredible to think that the speed of your internet is now limited by your wireless router, not the speed of the pipe itself :).

... How much of your personal information must they be gathering/stealing and selling forwards for this to be profitable?

A lot I bet. With the cable package include, I'll be on customized commercials for your demographic and internet viewing preferences.

If Google Fiber really takes off, and really becomes successful, it will change the world. Whether it will be a good or bad change is for you to decide, but I think it will be good.
