[TheVerge] Time Warner Cable says there's no consumer demand for gigabit internet - Page 19

post #181 of 326
In general people want more than they need. And this is just them saying it isn't worth their bother. Now, can they (locally) offer 100mb through roadrunner?

In general people demanding more than they need is what the primary driver for advancement in technology has been.

You mean you hate decisions that are based on cold, hard business facts? TW doesn't owe gigabit network just because you want it or even 10,000 people want it. They have to see a return on investment. Why build infrastructure if all the supporting parts don't match up?

For me and where I live, it's not that I need a 1Gbps connection, it's more that in needing a 50Mbps connection, I may as well get a 1Gbps connection for the same price and get speeds that are ~20x as fast.

Google has PROMISED one city they will EVENTUALLY get it, but they haven't delivered SQUAT yet ... and what they have delivered, was done on line that the CITY already owned. Google has done very little as a private company to actually go out and lay their own fiber.

And let me restate that ... It is only in ONE CITY (aside from their experiments on a couple college campuses).

So, please, tell me who is the "EVERYONE is getting it" thing.

And regardless of what you just said, it still doesn't invalidate what I said before ... what people WANT, and what people are willing to reasonably PAY are two different things.

I'm sure if you ask everyone on OCN, people will WANT a [Insert the name of a $250,000 car here] and only have to pay $17,000 for it.

You say you want it and so does everyone else in your area ... are you willing to pay 50 TIMES the price you pay now for it?

Sure, infrastructure costs increase proportional to internet speeds. rolleyes.gif

I can tell you google is more than likely using some very innovative and proprietary cutting edge network to be pushing 1g bit to each customer. it would make 10g bit look like 10 m bit.

Because they were given tax breaks/money to build the infrastructure?

Hey man! That tax money went to perfectly good 56kbps infrastructure so lay off.
