Re: Gigabit
I wonder about those 3% fees doing anything more than becoming a revenue source for the taxing authority. After all those fees aren't hurting Google or any other company "paying" the fees. It's all passed on to the consumer. Ever take a look at the percentage of cable and phone bills that are "fees."

Re: Gigabit
Out in Frontier country, we have one tiny community that has Gigabit, but it's  1G downstream, 100Mb upstream.  And that's residential service, NOT business, for $750/month.  So 500/500 sounds good to me!

Re: Gigabit
They're just responding by implementing usage caps, so they can get their pound of flesh from another part of the consumer. Some, like AT&T, are making massive moves into the OTT market themselves.

Re: Gigabit
Google Fiber pretty much wants virgin territories free of hundreds of years of political infighting and rotting under-city infrastructure. East coast remains a big no show.

Re: Gigabit
I wished that google fiber moved into Boston to make Verizon push up the data speed above the 500/500. If FiOS is the best in town the speed and pricing has to change the main issue with Comcast going to a gig still on coax cable. The hope of 5g that still is far away. FiOS is the king only if they have a team that know how to provide it to the customer and when most of today tv have apps they are still pushing a stb to the customer and not using the cloudy for a device

Gigabit
This all sounds like really good news for gigabit service. I wonder how having superfast internet will affect the OTT market? Does this mean that broadband providers also offering cable realize the days of traditional pay TV is over?
