I'm ready
Having fiber pulled into 3 of or 5 locations I'm ready for gigabit connections as soon as my carriers are ready.  It was hard enough to get the fiber pulled for pipes much less than gigabit speeds but with prices dropping and the fact that I'm paying less for fiber today than I was paying for copper lines just a few years ago it's looking like the dream of super fast connections to the internet is coming true.  I don't even have to ask what they'll be used for, we do enough large file transfers to clients and site to site that this will pay off quickly for us.
