Congratulations to CenturyLink

Happy to see CenturyLink's announcement that it will bringing 1-gigabit service to Las Vegas. This is another in a recent string of announcements by private sector telecom companies that they are investing huge sums of money to bring high-capacity, super-fast broadband to America's cities.
CenturyLink should be commended for the making the investment. 
The story in Bloomberg Businessweek News is here. The first two paragraphs follow.  
"Las Vegas residents will soon have access to Internet connections 100 times faster than the average broadband system.
CenturyLink announced Wednesday that it would bring 1-gigabit Internet service to the northwestern neighborhoods of Las Vegas before the end of the year. The company plans to expand it even further in 2014."
