Ben & Jason:

I live in Vulcan and am on Axia Fiber. Cost $61.95 / month  They are consistently delivering better than the promised 25 Mbs. For the record, I work for a computer security company based in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Its a beautiful thing.  ;D

What I am learning is how much of the Internet does not deliver at those speeds. I can tell when I hit a web site or a service that is operating at a low speed. For example, I occasionally have to do some bulk transfers. Most of the time they just don't move at the promised speeds. Apart from that, I love having fiber to the house.

Glad that Fiber is working for you! Hopefully when Shaw takes over from Axia, that you guys still get solid service.
