Re: ISP/Video Competition

said by myokitis:

They're desperate to win customers from each other, with employment (or lack thereof) implications depending on how the battle goes.
I don't work for a MSO or Telco but I'm smart enough to observe that someone desperate to win customers is not going to do so with ridiculous cap levels and insane markups when a competitor in the same market has no caps.

If TWC had simply opened their stats for public or independent scrutiny that could determine that in fact they are having bandwidth issues, it would go a long way toward resolving this dispute. That will never happen though.

So I see now, there's hinting at the layoff boogeyman if TWC doesn't "compete" (translation: caps and overages).
Tradition: Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
