Cox can kill them at birth

Seeing as how most people hate to switch providers(some BBR users notwithstanding), Cox can offer lock in discounts of 20% for multi-year deals and kill the new system from the get go.

Not to mention that they can't get the same volume discount that the Cable or Telco can get on video service. They won't have the cash reserves to sustain an extended price war. If there are any local small providers or wisps they will be run out of business from the upcoming price war. 5 years from now the Cable and Telco will still be there and prices will level out between the three if the Muni owned network survives.

Cox need not worry as they even offer 10mbps in their "havenot" areas
why cripple fibre at 10mbps is beyond me.

Isn't that how they did it in Utah(?)? Dropped the rates below anywhere else in the country until they put them out of business.

they kill it but they do so without release DOSCSIS3 and then tell the people of the city that the area isnt worth next gen deployment. so the telco and cable co get their wish for what the purchased judges in the court wouldnt do for them while not having to spend real upgrade dollars.
