On a related Colo Spgs Comcast topic, it appears we are at the center of a battle between Centurylink and Comcast. Ran across an August ArsTechnica article which provides more information. According to the article Comcast is attempting to keep Centurylink from installing fiber (at least in parts of the city).
Comcast allegedly trying to block CenturyLink from entering its territory
CenturyLink says it will get worse if Comcast is allowed to buy Time Warner Cable.
Apparently Comcast is using all kinds of delaying tactics. Centurylink claims they do not have this problem in AZ with Cox cable where they are putting in a similar system.
This squabbling adds more fuel to the fire about treating internet "last mile" access as a utility like a phone line in my opinion. Its not a luxury, its a necessity given how much financial and Government business is transacted over the internet. The internet is not just for entertainment. It has evolved in a similar manner as the telephone network from a novelty to necessity and should be treated in the same manner.
I noticed the old D11 Boces school (alternative HS) on Wooten has been taken over by Pauley Construction, often used by Centurylink for cable buildouts, and they have a massive fiberoptic materials stockpile. Since I only live about a mile from a central office, I'm hoping I can get fiber to the house very soon.
