Tennessee's 10Gbps broadband is $299 a month

Remember back when Chattanooga, Tennessee fought the FCC and Comcast earlier this year over broadband regulations? Of course you do. Now the city's back in the news because it's offering 10Gbps internet service that spreads across some 600 square miles and is accessible by "every" home and business. It'll cost those 170,000 homes and businesses, though. According to a release from local utility company EPB, that blazing fast speed will run $299 a month (pretty similar to Comcast) with gratis installation and without a contract. There'll apparently be 5Gbps and 10Gbps options for small businesses and 3Gbps, 5Gbps and 10Gbps pro-level packages for enterprise. Those prices will vary, but almost positively won't be "cheap" for folks like you and me by any stretch of the imagination.
