A gigabit is the loneliest number

GigaOM: The guys at the Lamp Post Group in Chattanooga, Tenn., have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to bandwidth. The city boasts the first real gigabit speeds in the U.S., and today is the deadline for folks to apply to come to the city this summer to build applications that can take advantage of the network’s awesome speeds. But there’s a problem too.

The story is too old to be commented.

Compared to other countries(especially Japan and S Korea) the U.S really does have an outdated internet structure. Funny how they probably spent a ton of money to put in place this system but it is limited to only their town...

My town is a historical landmark and the downside is that the streets can't be ripped up more than once every 15 years! Slowly but surely year-by-year it seems like better connections are being placed but it is funny to see how slow it progresses with regulations like this.
