Until then I will enjoy my 50/25 from VZW, I always get >50 and <25 though. Sometimes my DL speed triples to 150 MBs. biggrin.gif




Here's more of 100/100 connection awesomeness for 24$/m tongue.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I understand that. What I'm trying to say is it's just ridiculous for someone to add another $300.00 on their monthly bills for faster internet (if they want that speed more power to them, my opinion says it's crazy), I pay $48 for 50/10Mbps and I survive amazingly on that speed average sized Steam games download in 10-20 minutes, more then enough speed for streaming content.

I'm not saying you should just move to a different country because Google Fiber is cheap, I think you misunderstood what I'm trying to say.

You have to put things in perspective. If someone is makes $10M annually, then what is $300/month if they can save 20 mins?

Worth and value are subjective.

How is this even news?
KPN has been offering this service for about a year already for regular fiber adresses just 88 euro a month including TV and telephone.
If I ever have 3k euros laying around I'll buy the connection to the network suburbs in NL are a bad place to be in terms of connections.

Widespread pure fiber connections are no a reality in the United States.

For those curious, I pay $45 for this:



It comes with tech support that never calls for appointments when I'm told they will (they dont show up either), or customer support when I call in. Competition is fierce out here which is how they offer such amazing quality for the price.

Yeah, reminds me when I was still living in Burlington, NC.

It's not as bad here in Cary, mainly due to AT&T always poking TWC. But TWC still reigns and they very much have a monopoly on the market.

Your choice:

TWC: 55/5 mbps with no limitations for $110/mo.

OR

AT&T: 35/6 mbps with 150gb limit per month for $80/mo.


My average traffic hovers anywhere between 300gb and 800gb (on real busy months) so there's no way I can survive under AT&T. I run a voice server and a Plex server on that measly 5mbps upload. Which really is all I can get away with before things start to get REAL slow.

I would gladly give up 20mbps of my download to have more upload speed. The depressing part is not the 55mbps, OBVIOUSLY. It's the falsly advertised 5mbps that barely gives me over 150kb/s upload speed on GOOD DAYS.

That my friend, is downright depressing.

For comparison, I pay $2600 a month for a 1BR apt in SoHo and I own a house half an hour away by subway. I pay $50/mo for 20/2 cable internet through TWC for my apt and my house has 85/35 FiOS at $35/mo.

I still prefer living in the apt.

An extra $300 may seem crazy to you since it's 1/3rd your current bill but for people with a lot of disposable income, it's not.

Where I live they are neither but most decent towns do have at least a few areas.
