Consumer advantage?
What's the advantage to consumers here? Why go with these guys rather than the safe cable or telco incumbent?

Re: Consumer advantage?
Potentially cheaper. Plus some folks will do anything to get rid of the cable guy.

Alameda!
I live in Alameda! It's barely a suburb, less than a mile from downtown Oakland. Haven't heard of this company.

Re: Alameda!
Well you should go check it out! Clearly some research from a resident is in order.

Re: Alameda!
Wow -- this story is straight out of 1998. As they say on the other side of the invisible wall, buena suerte.

Re: Alameda!
It does sound like I'm going to have to go undercover. I'll start planning my disguise...

Re: Alameda!
 

You know I have talked to dozens of small ISPs over the last year.  There is a mix of wireless and wireline out there.  Not sure why this one got any special attention.  In the Bay Area (different parts alone), I am aware of a dozen or so small ISPs some bigger and some smaller than this firm.  The largest I am aware of is Sonic.net.  The smallest is Monkey Brains.  I am sure that I am missing many of them.

Re: Consumer advantage?
Not sure in this case, but often it's better customer service, or (as we see with ISPs like Sonic), companies actually giving a damn about things like consumer privacy.

Re: Alameda!
Yes I certainly welcome any and every shred of additional competition, but this doesn't strike me as exceptionally different from what a countless number of other smaller providers are currently attempting.

Re: Alameda!
I like the idea, although it's surprising to see former Square employees working on this. That company focuses on payments, which is totally different from this. Not saying this won't take off; it is quite divergent though.
