Good for T.J. but without support from big industry Farmington will be left behind. No pun intended, by Merrion is a very small fry and the City needs support from XTO (Exxon), BHP, ConocoPhillips, BP, and the Navajo Nation, all together, to make this thing fly.

Oh, what about Rob Mayes - he has yet to make one sales call !

Anybody tried Comcast

I run an I.T. shop & we have a customer who is currently pulling 30Mbps down via Comcast. Upload isn't that good, but still 7+ which is way faster than anything else affordable. Comcast is currently not capping people's bandwidth in Farmington (so they say & our tests agree). They plan to in the future. There are some things that I (& many others) don't like about Comcast, and they are no Tier 1 provider. But I think that having their service available to most of Farmington puts us inline with most of the nation. I no longer feel like we're in the DSL stone age. There are other communities with fiber available to the masses & having Google's here would be great. A competitive product in terms of speed, quality & price would be great. I do believe that having 1Gbps fiber affordable to all would definitely allow businesses to exist here that currently can't. However I just don't feel like what we already have is behind most of the nation.
We also have offerings (including Ethernet)from Qwest competitors such as Cedar Networks for a significantly lower price.
So come on Google. Pick us. We would like it.:-)

I like options but I would not give my business to any internet company that had as pathetic a web page/site as Packetrail has (at least as of today - 2011-01=24). It's a single page that is a logo and nothing else.

Come on Packetrail and inspire confidence!

Come on Google!

Hi Doug,

I'm glad to learn of your company. Impala's website is indeed impressive! We hope to have the PacketRail site launched in early February and look forward to meeting you. PacketRail is based in Durango, and our network spans two states. Nothing to conceal, just early.
