If you can't wait for Google Fiber to reach your area, there may be another option on the horizon. Startup company Starry wants to provide Gigabit wireless Internet connections with no data caps or restrictive contracts.
The current high-speed providers in the US have hobbled us in comparison to Internet speeds of other countries, and worse, charge a higher rate for their sub-par services. Of even greater interest is that existing ISPs tend to suddenly have the capability to provide faster and/or more reasonably priced services almost as soon as an alternative Internet provider is available in a region.
As consumers, we should be excited about any new Internet provider willing to shake up the status quo. Though I haven't heard any whispers of a reliable alternative coming to this area soon, I'll be sure to report as soon as an option is available.
