Already informed my wifey we switching from uverse

Good luck getting that in Mint Hill  :P

 

Seriously though, it'll probably be years before it gets to the burbs. Highest population density areas are likely going to get it first because that is more $ per foot of fiber laid.

The only map I've seen is an unofficial map some dude put on his blog. This is what Google said on their Twitter yesterday:

I actually was looking at that map on google yesterday... I could zoom in and poo.  I just checked it again and google took that map down and replaced with a word "In Progress"

I live in Mint Hill but my postal service is Matthews and my house located 3 miles from Charlotte city limits.

If you're within 5 miles of a fiber hub you might be alright.

 

Even if you don't get fiber, with fiber coming to town, it is almost assured that TWC raises speeds, won't throttle your speeds, and doesn't implement data caps. It is the only way they'll be able to keep people from fleeing to Google and I doubt they'd be so specific as to say a Charlotte customer gets all those advantages and a Mint Hill customer doesn't.

The map actually showed only about 2% of Mint Hill getting Google Fiber... I was in the 2%.  Map showed part of Matthews and tiny part of Mint Hill getting google fiber.
