Re: Infrastructure improvements
If you have any legitimate suggestions for a different way to generate the billions of dollars necessary to rebuild our infrastructure, we're happy to hear you out.That question suggests Time Warner Cable, a very healthy and profitable company, is not already making enough revenue to perform very organic and necessary upgrades in order to remain competitive. That's not the case, Jeff. Time Warner Cable is very profitable, and DOCSIS 3.0 upgrades are relatively inexpensive. Particularly if upgrade locations are going to be selective.
Your own COO this morning on the conference call called DOCSIS 3.0 "a marketing ploy at this point," saying upgrades are "more about marketing noise than about reality," adding that TWC "will play the game where we need to." That lax attitude is because in many of your territories, there isn't much competition so upgrades aren't necessary -- not because the funds aren't there.
We think that charging for usage is an equitable way to generate the necessary revenue.Again, this suggests you don't already make a very healthy profit via monthly service charges, VoIP, TV revenue, and other less public money makers like DNS Redirection advertising or the sale of clickstream data (assuming you sell the latter). I'd love to see actual numbers that suggest there's so little revenue, an entirely new billing paradigm for bandwidth is in order. I ask this of every carrier who suggests metered billing is necessary -- and interestingly -- they can never provide it.
I think you'll simply wind up driving customers to competitors in a misguided attempt to please investors and crush alternative TV video delivery.
