In recent light of Google’s announcements of fiber service in several cities, it is reported by the Wall Street journal that Vermont Telephone Company is offering gigabit internet service to its customers at a price of $35 per month. Currently they report there are about 600 people subscribed. Just to compare, Google is offering the same service in select cities for $70 per month. We will see how long the small company can sustain charging so little for such a fast internet pipe.
The good news for everyone is that there is competition in this area which will hopefully continue to push the boundaries of your home internet speed as well as bring down the prices.
