said by Qumahlin:no, it's your typical misleading marketing bullshit. TW is comparing their fiber to Verizon. They are basically saying "hey, look! we have fiber too. Sign up today" said by hopeflicker: said by probboy:
For 99.999% of the population, it doesn't really matter where the fiber terminates, be it at the house or at the node. All people care about what services are offered at what price.
then why would TW go to the extent to claim they have fiber if only 99.999999% of users dont care?
I see what you are saying, but it's nothing but bullshit when TW is trying to compare themselves to FIOS.
You don't understand basic marketing tactics do you? TW's ad is a direct result of FIOS ads which are designed to tell the public "fiber is better". Sadly the majority of consumers in this country are not knowledgeable on most tech subjects and believe whatever they are told.
If FIOS didn't have ads touting fiber as the godsend of the internet then TW wouldn't have to tout the fact that their network contains more of this magical substance in their commercials.
It's not bullshit at all. TW's network contains more fiber. It's a 100% factual statement.
