"Gig Tank" winner went with Comcast

Chattanooga "Gig Tank" winner gets his company's internet connection from Comcast, not EPB:

He pleaded with EPB officials to run a strand of their famous gigabit fiber to Iron Labs' office in the CitiPark building, a block and a half from the utility's downtown headquarters.

There's a lot that's interesting about this, but also a lot that suggests that the "gigabit" fiber in Chattanooga is a publicity stunt, and that EPB doesn't really know how to run a network...

So it's just like cellular service: the bandwidth is free as long as you don't actually use it.
