|Internet Service in a Seattle Area Home|
The excitement did finally arrive into our home a couple of days ago, so that we can usher in the New Year at higher Internet (download) speeds! The accompanying image shows you that we now have a 100+ Mbps service in our home in the Seattle area.
|Google Fiber's New Cities, 2014|
A Google Fiber would give you 1 Gbps symmetrical service. But, for some reason, the Seattle area is off the 34-city list planned for Google fiber by the end of 2014. However, Silicon Valley is blessed this time, even though it was not the first area offering Google Fiber; see Google's map.
In this day and age, when most people keep their data files in the cloud in spite of the vulnerability to hacking, etc., not having good speeds — download and upload — in the Internet service is a handicap.
Best wishes, dear reader, for the New Year.
May the (Internet) force be with you!
