Not going to happen.

50/20 Mbps will not happen!

ISPs will not spend the money to upgrade.

Yet they will probably spend more money than it would cost to get us close to this lofty goal by fighting municipal builds and paying for lobbyists to push policies toward stifling innovation and strengthening their dominant control over the market.

It would be great (though impossible) to see an audit result of the total money spent on protectionism vs. the cost of wiring every home in the country with fiber to the home.

     That's probably most of it.  Others include Paxio, UTOPIA, and that one service (I forget the name) in Chattanooga, TN.

The company in Chattanooga is EPB Fiber Optics. It's $70.00 for 50/50.

I am impressed with how much red there was in TN Here in Murfreesboro,TN we can get 50/10 with Comcast and I think they may even offer faster they just don't advertise it. I know there is a fiber system in Tullahoma, TN (www.lighttube.net) also offering a service like in Chattanooga and they have 25/10 for $60 and the 50/25 is like $150

Lets not forget DOCSIS 3.0 upgrades on the Comcast end will also net that much speed.

All services only handfuls of people can get.

Awesome those Docsis 3 speeds. Too bad one can barely use them due to the CAP.

I have blast right now and never hit the cap. Go figure. 250gb per month is quite reasonable. If anything, as the speeds increase, so will the cap down the road. Especially as more ISPs penetrate into the markets like they are now.

I do not believe that any DOCSIS 3.0 consumer package reaches 20 Mbps for uploads. No Comcast service in my area is offered that meets the 50/20 criteria. Since the stats suggest only 1%, I'd have to think that Comcast was omitted, and rightfully so, due to the limits on the upstream capacity.

Don't forget EPB likes caps but they won't speak about that publicly.

On business but not residential. You sure complain a lot about a company you voluntarily buy service from despite having other alternatives.
