Re: Comcast
Good question. I'd love to see a roundup story about all the other broadband providers now doing 1 Gig service. Maybe they'll have a broader impact taken all together.

Re: Comcast
Wonder how the Utopia Project feels about this?

Re: Comcast
Sure. Nut it remains to be seen just how many markets they'll build. Most analysts don't believe they'll actually make a big, national run for the gold.

Re: Comcast
Well, I don't think that is its only altrustic goal. It also wants more eyeballs for ads and to build out its web TV ambitions, no?

Re: Comcast
Wouldn't it be interesting if Google Fiber just upped the stakes for other BB providers, got them all to boost speeds to 500 mbit/s or 1 Gbit/s or more and then withdrew from the stage, having achieved its goal? Nice wsork if you can get it.

Re: Comcast
ha, that is ironic...or hypocritical, I suppose. And, AT&T announced its plans for a Gig response in Austin this week too. This is what Google wanted when it started its Fiber project...forcing competitors to step up their game.

Excellent write up.

I find it entertaining that Comcast's David Cohen has been on a tour lately repeatedly stating there's absolutely nothing wrong with the state of competition in United States broadband, then Comcast immediately proves competitive critics right with their response in Provo showing that rates would be lower with improved competition.

While Comcast can manage to compete, I imagine things could prove much more difficult for CenturyLink.
