Thanks to everyone who responded -- my list of places I'm willing to
live is rounding out. ;-)
XMission does offer 1000/1000, as well; I seem to recall the price is
something like $300/mo. For us, the problem was more finding remote
sites that can push data rates anywhere near one's own limit (as it's
enough of a problem at 100mbit), making the price bump not quite worth it.
The unfortunate fallout from having such great service is that I live
in fear of having to move outside of a UTOPIA service area, and back to
the duopoly providers (Comcast & CenturyLink for the most part here).
One might suggest getting XMission over DSL, but CenturyLink has been
locking out third-party providers as they've rolled out ADSL2.
