too little too late
Any ISP deploying a network serving LESS than 1,000 customers SERVING, not PASSED OVER.. should be considered a TEST market deployment!

 

ATT is deploy lots of "TEST MARKETS" and actually delivering very little.. and in the cases that they do offer something they are retrenching terms of service to include caps and overages.. the greedy bastards! And not long after Comcast said they would expand more cap & overage markets with surcharges... just daring the feds to break this up with regulation...

Re: Like San Antonio?
I see nothing but disappointment from users who see they're in a "launch" market for Gigapower, only to find that they can't get service. Some markets are notably larger than others, but quite literally in many markets a "launched" market can mean little more than just a single housing development on a hill. Nobody really calls them out for this practice, but they're the first to get bent out of shape by Google Fiber misrepresenting its own availability.

Like San Antonio?
If ATT's offering is anything like what they claimed in San Antonio, approximately three, maybe four houses will get Gigapower service. Those houses being ones on rich, densely-populated communities built in the last three years where fiber to the premises already exists. After ATT flips the Gigapower switch on those homes, no further construction or improvements will happen. This is ATT's Gigapower pageant, and now LA gets to watch it too.

Re: Asymmetrical
I am on Comcast so have a limited upstream.  I can tell you that the processing time on Youtube is a lot longer than the upload time that I face when I put my video blog up there.

Asymmetrical
If I recall, AT&T's gigabit offering is only 25Mb/s upstream. With all the creatives in LA, the upstream bandwidth is the issue, more than the downstream. Getting content up to YouTube or Vimeo is where the bottleneck is. At least, that's what I see people complaining about online all the time.
