I already have fiber to my house with Verizon FIOS.I have ATT U-verse. The fiber does not come to my house; the last mile is twisted pair copper. Cable, which is co-ax, has faster internet service.I know Verizon was putting fiber optic on the poles in NJ, but I would be surprised if you have fiber in your home. Mine uses the cable system co-ax in my house and some over the housewiring connections to avoid rewiring.As to cost and speed, it is embarrassing that internet speeds in the US are slow compared to places like Korea, where they have invested heavily. Thank goodness Google is trying to work it out. We all hope they succeed.I do not like your implication that the US is too large for high speed internet service. Too costly. We can't afford it. Slowly we will get there.
