Chattanooga's Got 'the Gig'... But Now, What?

http://archive.org/download/ChattanoogasGotTheGigButIsntSureHowToUseIt_730/gigcity.mp3

Chattanooga is one of  a handful of places in the country where everyone has access to "ultra-high-speed" broadband.  EPB offers internet that can download and upload data at a rate of one gigabit-per-second, which is up to 200 times faster than what most American's use.

The service, which EPB has offered for about a year and a half, is a source of pride for many Chattanoogans. Still, there isn't a whole lot people can do with all that bandwidth... at least for now.
