Benoit Felten brings to our attention that Hong Kong has recently dropped its price for 1Gbps fiber service to $26/month. The price for 100Mbps service as of November is $13/month.
Yesterday, Michael Weinberg was interviewed on the pdx.fm show PDX Gen-Y by Bret Bernhoft about the importance of Google Fiber and Portland Fiber in general. Michael does a great job of explaining why open-access freedom and high capacity are so important to the future of Portlanders. Worth a listen.
