Schools, most likely, have the T-100 (Gigabit ethernet) connection as they have a large number of computers and servers. That is what is used in large office buildings and major company and university campuses.

My complaint was that the retail internet service provided to the general public in Tulsa is lacking. I don't consider 6 MBPS sufficient for what most people think the internet is capable of doing such as downloading rentals from Netflix or watching live video.

Six megabits is MORE than enough to download movies, apps, etc. I have a five megabit connection here in Texas and it is just fine. I don't know why a person would complain about a true six meg connection.

It's because you stayed in Southeast Tulsa. Only midtown is worth a damn in this city. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Please keep me posted?! I've basically grown up downtown. I was in the last graduating class of the downtown, Tulsa Central. We use to eat lunch at a little place in the Philtower. (some days). Going to high school in the 70's in a very cool, old building downtown was a blast! I'm so thankful Tulsa finally pulled their heads out of their you-know-whats, and stopped imploding our beautiful buildings. I still bemoan the loss of the Orpehuim Theater and I'm only 51, so I barely remember it.

I've have been on only one tour of the downtown art-deco buildings. It would be fun to do again.

And whoever said Tulsa has four seasons is crazy. We have five months of misery unless you just like hot and humid weather. I don't, but I'm here so I adjust my mind. Begrudgingly. I enjoyed last winter because it actually got cold and stayed cold for longer than 48 hours. We have some of the best thunderstorms of anywhere.
