Sure, Google is rolling out its Google Fiber service out in various cities in the United States, but if you live in Oregon you might want to check out SandyNet.

SandyNet is rolling out fiber access throughout Oregon, offering 100Mbps for $40 per month or 1Gbps for just $60 per month. Both services do not include a contract, nor do they have any data limitations or caps. SandyNet GM Joe Knapp told Ars Technica during a recent interview: "Part of the culture of SandyNet is we view our citizens as owners of the utility. We've always run the utility on a break-even basis. Any profits we do have go back into capital improvements and equipment upgrades and things like that".

The construction of SandyNet's ambitious fiber network started in June 2014, where it is now connecting 50 new homes to the super-fast Internet each week. Oregon has a 40-year master plan in place, which has the state looking at expanding its fiber network quite rapidly over the coming decades.
