  • Choo choo indeed: Chattanooga has launched America's first community-wide 25Gbps internet service.  (Hacker News)

    It's not exactly cheap - $1500 per month for residential customers and $12,500 per month for business - and you will need either Cat8 cabling or fiber internally, but it is available now.

    Great for schools and businesses if a little beyond the reach of the average household.  And a good way to bootstrap a small city into a regional tech hub.

    Also, I linked to Hacker News because the ISP's own web site is down.  I don't know what that says, but it says something.

1 About the Chattanooga Internet service link:  bit funny seeing the comments about standard users not needing that much.  Reminds me of supposed/made up Bill Gates remark about people not needing more than 640K of RAM.  Even if he didn't say it, you could find people who agreed with it....at that time.  A lack of vision.

2 Chattanooga has been full fiber for a while now. Not only that, but their tiny five gate airport has the easiest to use free Wi-Fi I've ever found.

3 Mauser - did you ever stay there long enough to eat out?  When our son was at Ft Stewart we'd stop overnight at Chattanooga on the drive out to see him.  They had an interesting burger joint called GollyWhoppers.  Sounds like it closed several years ago.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
