Re: Who is paying these morons?
said by 45612019:size isn't everything. you have to look at the areas that frontier serve. growing up in rural arizona, frontier was the first company that offered any xDSL offerings. i remember people paying over $120/month for a 1meg/128k DSL line and a landline with no features and they were more than happy to pay it. now that cybertrails has abandoned most everything in northern AZ, any DSL customers of cybertails will have to jump ship and move on to frontier or pay for satellite.
This lowball cap is going to kill off this puny little company's already tiny subscriber base.
when any LEC has control over a rural user base that has been left out and forgotten by all of "the usual suspects", they can almost charge what they want when they want, especially when you have a technology driven society from the more "technologized" areas wanting to get their parents broadband for remote support/use at home/etc. these people won't use more than 5GB a month so won't notice any impact on their bill. this will keep happening until the ENTIRE subscriber base removes themselves from such a greedy company, especially when you have ILECs like verizon selling off rural areas to smaller companies because they don't want to pay for the infrastructure.
everyone wants a share of the pie. the major players take all they want and tease the smaller LECs/cable operators. because the smaller guys want a piece of what is left, they take the crumbs and tease the people who have nothing. plain and simple corporate greed, but i can honestly see many people not even knowing that the transition of the caps ever happened and won't ever know because they never exceed their caps.
