    Google Exploring Fiber for Chicago and Los Angeles

    This is exactly what happened to OKC. Ever since Google said they may potentially be coming to the area with fiber, Cox Communications ALL OF A SUDDEN has gigabit ethernet on the way. When before the max tier was 100mb for ridiculous prices.
