Who isn’t a fan of Comcast? Unfortunately, Comcast is known as one of America’s most hated companies, and if you live in Green Lake chances are you are stuck with them. Well Greenlakers might finally have a viable alternative to Comcast for super-fast internet service in the neighborhood. According to a recent post by Geekwire, CenturyLink is planning on expanding its gigabit internet service to five new neighborhoods in Seattle–and Green Lake is among them!

The service has already been available to customers in Ballard, Beacon Hill and West Seattle and has seen more than 45,000 customers sign up. The internet speeds are 20 times faster than your typical Comcast broadband, and will cost $79 per month (when bundled with other eligible services). According to the Geekwire article, the new service may be available in the neighborhood as soon as this fall.

This announcement should be a boon to tech workers working at home, and anyone else who wants the most reliable streaming available for their Netflix binge.
