1000 Mbps when the next fastest commercially available internet is 300 Mbps. Most people wouldn't need it, I would kill for it

They don't have Big Ten Network because it's KS City.

Kind of like saying they don't have CSN (Comcast SportsNet).

I believe all of those are available on the internet. And if you have these speeds it would be very quick to watch.

Ok, I will take that into consideration for when they expand. I didn't see ESPN though, so I'm still missing a lot of college football. Plus those other networks.

However, it would be sweet to not lag in video games. Maybe if they expand to my area I will investigate. Probably switch if they add my networks.

To watch HBO Go, you have to have an HBO subscription and an internet provider that carries HBO Go.

First I was thinking about moving to KC. Now we might have to move to HK?
