Re: Is Comcast on top now?
This deal, if we read into it correctly, means that in many suburban/exurban/rural areas, Comcast, Time Warner and BrightHouse have been given exclusive status as a broadband provider. And there's still plenty of major cities where FiOS never got wired to all residences, and some like Baltimore and Boston, who didn't get it at all.
Verizon here offers 3 Mbps DSL max. What incentive does Atlantic Broadband have to ever upgrade the network here? The highest speed tier we have is 15/1.5. While some areas have seen D3 with ABB, we haven't. Think Verizon's lack of interest here is part of the reason why? I do.
