I know people that has it and it is really nice and the internet seems alot faster than the standard cable dsl that highland use to use and the tv cable does not go out like it did when ever it storms.

Can you just get fiber optic Internet and not cable tv? To install the fiber optic will they need to come inside the house for anything? I am a truck driver and I'm not home much so I would need to have someone here for them.

The fiber speed is capped at the same speeds as copper DSL. So you're not going to see a huge difference. Maybe a tiny amount because you it'll be digital but unless you have line problems before you'll see less than a 5% difference in speed. When they are done with ALL the fiber upgrades they'll move the speed caps up higher and it'll be a HUGE difference (1.5mbit/sec to 20mbit/sec) but that's in like 2014 or something.

You also have to have a land line to receive internet or TV. TV is better than Comcast, but the Internet sucks, you don't get the speed your are paying for half the time. You can call them and complain and in about 10 minutes it will be working correctly then some tech calls and what to come in your house and the last time I let them in my house they tracked mud from one end to the other for me to clean up. It is always your problem not theirs.

I have the dsl..and it seems to be getting slower and slower. When are we going to get the fiber optic I have heard McCreary Co got it and Morgan County???? I guess Scott County will be the last on their list...as usual...shame they are using government grant money to pay for it and probally only putting it where board members live first. Same old Scott County bs.
