Google consider Portland and couple others surrounding cities for gigabit service. I hope it will follow through.
Funny thing is there is s small town near me have city utility own service for $40 a month (sandy) which is fantastic for their residents. I saw a telecom company advertise gigabit service while I was on business trip to Madison. U.s is way behind in technology for Internet service. century link and frontier also offer service but it is way more than what Google service for 1gb here in their service area.
