As an early adopter of Google Fiber here in Kansas City, I was paying $133 per month for high-speed internet plus their television service, with no premium channels.
I dropped service with them a couple months ago. I've had service long enough with them that they moved me to their free lower-speed internet service. I bought a $15 dollar antenna for my television and get all the networks. I've subscribed to Hulu and I'm pretty happy for very little investment, regardless of what the cable companies think. :)
I just finished installing a bunch of Juniper hardware, running JunOS... even though everything I've seen points to ScreenOS equipment, now I have to spend time and effort looking again at our JunOS equipment. Sigh.
The gentleman's name is actually "Peter Hirtle". I got to meet him a couple years ago at Cornell... very bright guy and well versed in copyright issues (member of the Section 108 Study Group, among other things).
