SureWest brings 100Mbps internet, HDTV to Kansas City homes

Darren Murph

While Time Warner Cable is busying trialing consumption-based internet billing, SureWest Communications is encouraging more residents of Kansas City to download at will. As of now, around 1,500 domiciles in Merriam and Olathe have access to the company's 100Mbps fiber-based internet, and it's hoping to reach thousands more homes by early 2009. Additionally, the FTTH network is bringing along a respectable array of high-def channels to those who dig the bundle, though a specific lineup wasn't mentioned. It's not quite Sigbritt Löthberg fast, but it's pretty nimble.
