Small Alberta Town to Get Gigabit Speeds

Residents of a 8,500-resident Canadian town north of Calgary will get gigabit service for the same price they now pay for 100 Mbps, as part of a network upgrade by the town's non-profit ISP. 

The non-profit Olds Institute for Community and Regional Development in Olds, Alberta, Canada will pay $57 a month for a gigabit connection if they also subscribe to television or phone services, or pay $90 a month a la carte, at least as part of a promotion the ISP is running. 

O-Net already provides 100 Mbps service in town, and O-Net also got a $6 million loan from the town of Olds to support construction of the network.
