Re: Seattle on the Gigabit Map
I wonder too. It suspect they'd be a bit gun-shy after the Gigabit Squared experience. But maybe they'll find a more reputable partner and continue to pursue it. I'm working on talking to the Seattle CTO to try and do a follow-up on their plans.

Re: Seattle on the Gigabit Map
I was surprised by that as well during visits. Much like Silicon Valley, you'd expect that the networks would have come along for the ride along with other technology innovation. I'd wonder if the smattering of 1 Gbps deployments is enough to have the city ease off their now decade-old flirtations with building their own network?

Seattle on the Gigabit Map
CondoInternet's expansion doesn't substantially raise the number of customers passed (only about another 2.400, according to Thompson), but it and CenturyLink's rollout should help raise awareness of and demand for gigabit services. If the city is successful in finding a network partner (could that partner be Wave/CondoInternet?), Seattle could become a gigabit hotbed in no time. Given its tech heritage, I'm a little surprised it isn't already.
