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. ...

Cox in my area keeps advertising "Gigablast", a gigabit/sec data plan, but thus far it hasn't become available to me. The best that I can get from them right now is 300/30 Mbps with a 2TB cap. ...
