Gigabit fiber to my apartment? Please and thank you!

Residents at Dayton’s newest downtown apartment community, Water Street Flats, will soon have something folks in more urbane locales would die for – gigabit fiber in their apartments. That’s 1,000 mbps, or 40 times faster than the FCC’s recently upgraded definition of broadband Internet, and will be able to handle 4K streaming video (or 8K, for that matter) with ease. The fiber is being laid by Dayton-based Extra Mile Fiber, which is openly aping the Google Fiber business model to provide lightning quick connectivity in its hometown, according to this article in the Dayton Daily News. Way to go, Ohio!
