@brooks7,

I'm not surprised to hear that. I know it's all about dollars & cents at the end of the day. Not convenience for customers.

Re: A dose of fear might be good
 

@pcharles09,

I worked at AFC when Verizon was trying to do BPON builds in New York.  They had a huge problem with a number of building owners who did not want to let FiOS in.  Cablevision often gives the owner some advantages in keeping them as exclusive.  An example would be a security setup for the owner.

The thing is with those kind of things there is little motivation for the owner to do anything.

@brooks7,

I have 2 realistically but am limited to 1. I felt that if there were more choices, then there might be added pressure on building management to allow more than just 1 provider into the building.

Re: A dose of fear might be good
pcharles,

Most places have 2.  So a few is good.  Why do you think lots of people are going to place lots of networks anywhere?  Spend $1000 per home passed?

@danielcawrey,

They already do. I only have a few provider choices in NYC. That's odd, right?

Re: A dose of fear might be good
More competition is good for consumers, but it is bad for big businesses like these broadband providers. This is why they are going to work to limit rivals in any markets they operate in.

February Open Meeting
Update:  Unnamed FCC officials say that an order on the Chattanooga and Wilson petitions will be voted upon in the Commission's February Open Meeting.  Same meeting as the Open Internet vote. 

FCC Open Meetings are webcast.  Stock up on popcorn. Or No-Doz.

Re: the problem
Ariella, interesting analysis.  Fully agree.  Also, the individual gets lost in the socialized system by people serving their idea of what the individual wants, as opposed to letting the individual choose.

Duh, I agree that they are astutely reviewing the proper application of the law.  I think their interpretation with state jurisdiction is correct; in agreement with Mitch.

It appears to be that there is a mix of "legitimate" interpretation and hidden agendas in this.

Re: Let's keep our eyes on the ball
Not everyone agrees with your premise, and politics has almost nothing to do with it. And I don't think anyone who comments on this board needs to "get educated first." With maybe one or two exceptions.
