Want gigabit internet? Local company may beat Google to it

RST hopes to roll out home service this summer in Charlotte, Raleigh and Asheville, offering gigabit internet at around $100 a month. They also plan to offer television and other services and expect to deal with stiff competition from competitors like Google Fiber. “Number one, we have to be price competitive,” Limerick says. “Number two, we have to provide quality and reliable service.”

Number three? They have to tell people they exist.
