[TheVerge] Time Warner Cable says there's no consumer demand for gigabit internet - Page 11

post #101 of 326
No is a strong word, but I would agree more people would benefit from stable and reliable 25/5 or even 50/10.

I know I am the exception working online, I'd love 1000/1000 now!

Good luck on that one.
Water is just a slightly different challenge to overcome than a "highly populated" city. In a city, you have to deal with trying to put fiber in place without stopping the flow of traffic and deal with concrete and existing water lines, power lines, and sewer lines.

If you had done some reading on this subject, you would know all that, and that just because you are in a city, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is cheaper to run fiber, ESPECIALLY when you have to deal with governments, unions, and even things like Historical Societies. Not to mention who owns the land (often dozens or hundreds of people) between point A and your house, point B.

Who know, maybe one day this will all sink in and the light bulb will go off and you will realize that having 1000/1000 to your house isn't JUST about cost per foot for outdoor fiber optic cable.

Your going off on the assumptions today.

I said I would pay MORE than I currently am if my connection was only a 50/25 connection. I work in construction, Concrete to be specific. So I know very well how much money something like this would cost, and never once, did I ever say I wouldn't pay my fair price for it. Jeeze man, slow down and read some....

Ok, let's just cut right to the chase then.

What is the ABSOLUTE top dollar that you would pay per month for 1000/1000?

And would you agree to be locked in to a multi-year term until the $1500-$6000 installation costs (that's just the installation costs, not even for pushing one single byte of data) just for running it to your house is paid?

Further, are you willing to keep paying those $1500-$6000 costs every 20 years to maintain that connection?

I know I will sit in the exception to the rule because my family runs a business out of home along with 3-4 online games going, 3-4 streams alone with a couple baby monitors using WiFi. Not to mention maintaining 20-40 VPN connections to automotive dealers all around the U.S. So Gigabit Internet would be very much welcome, and would actually enhance our productivity since were often waiting on the connection to continue working.

We payed quite a bit for 50 Down and 5 Up but as of currently TWC nor AT&T can supply the speeds to begin with, at any which part of the day. So we switched to 30 Down and 5 Up, still cant supply it.



Oh man look at that ping! Yeah thats what my money can supply, and I have no demand for the service I currently pay for. So why should I want a better service?

Also a pingtest yielded an 80% packet loss because the techs that deploy these networks seem to be idiots.

But I dont have any desire for a better service lol. Thanks TWC for speaking on my and my businesses behalf.

My 3k post had to be a TWC tangent >.>

Personally I feel that is worth around $150-ish a month, No phone, No cable, No goodies. I feel that price should include a "basic" router/modem (nothing fancy, not even wifi or USB ports) with nicer model's (wifi, ect) being available for extra charge. So ABSOLUTE top dollor is 200 a month, just for the connection, I would happily pay extra for phone, fancy router/modem and cable/satalite TV service.

EDIT: shoot, forgot to add that the above price's would reflect in my world a 2-5 year contract.

When gmail launched, MS and Yahoo said customers didn't need or want 1gb of mail storage. Then seven years later when they finally upgraded their hardware, they marketed 1 gb of storage as a feature.

Time warner has made lots of statements about google fiber. Anything from, people don't really want it, to it would cost 140 billion to implement (which was proven to be untrue but hey).

They're just doing damage control and trying to keep competition out of the game.

The difference between 50mbit and 1000mbit internet is going to be marginally noticeable, unless your downloading a lot of large files from a service that can provide the bandwidth. Most websites can't feed a client 10mbit/s of data. TW is also getting caught up in the GBit internet benchmark facade which is more or less a term for unlimited and a internet arm with which to flex and point atm.

Two edges on one sword. One side is enforcing the fact that it isn't needed which is an attempt to retain a bit of their infrastructure and the other side is POed because they want what all that is available for the sake of getting it.
What I'd really like to see is more upload speed or even symmetrical speeds for residential users and an extension of their speed boost.

With their profit margin's they should be able to do better than they have.. it sucks when your own greed bites you.

Doesn't that number spread around since in a city people usually live very close to each other.... or are you saying that it costs $6000 to maintain the 2 meter connection from the sidewalk into the house?
