I know someone who had this a few years ago, before SureWest bought
WinFirst out. He was pretty impressed with it, even running a web/ftp
server off his firewall box. I've never used it myself, but he had
confirmed the speeds were what they advertised, and uptime was excelent.

I've been waiting for this to get to my neighborhood for quite a while.
I don't even see the coverage map on their website anymore. (Last I
looked it was a year out of date anyways)
