I noticed that Cox Gigablast price is the same as Ultimate, but requires a $100 installation, no doubt to run the fiber into your home. Since I rent rooms in homes I'll probably never have that. But I could get the 300/30 Ultimate.

$100 is not enough to actually run fiber to a location.

It's what one article claimed was the installation fee. Someone else cited it as being $300. In another location it was free in a promotion with a promotional monthly rate of $79. It has extremely limited availability. I read somewhere that they may at some point be offering gigabit speeds via DOCSIS 3.1 modems. Hopefully that happens.

Damn, and I thought my 100/30 was fast. They haven't upgraded here in years though so it's overdue. 100MB a sec though....id just sell all my hard drives, keep a few SSDs and use cloud storage with that kind of bandwidth.

Not trying to be a kill-joy or thread police, but it should probably be pointed out that the last 25 posts have little to nothing to do with Xbox One.

And yes, I'm guilty by participating, so....

Just FYI, Gigablast is only FTTH at this time. Cox will begin testing DOCSIS 3.1 upgrades this year and will expand Gigablast service into those areas. The first 3.1 modem design from Arris/Motorola is now available and in limited testing with all cable ISPs, who are testing the provider version, while the consumer version will be released later on. Both versions are identical, except one is branded Arris and the other Motorola and the Arris version is the one ISPs will be selling/renting to customers.

True, and judging by the thumbs up you received, others have noticed. What can we say? We gamers are speed/bandwidth greedy!

Those specs. Methinks a PC build project is in my future.
