If you can't open it, you don't own it.

Keep in mind the 1TB is a 'soft' cap that I haven't been called on yet and no way could they hope to enforce a 1TB cap for 1Gbps service!

lol wow, I couldn't even find a use for that much bandwidth unless I really tried.

I download movies & TV shows. I stream HD video via Netflix & YouTube daily. I listen to Pandora all the time. I still couldn't even come close to 1 TB if I tried.

Granted, I only have a 10Mbps connection...I might find more creative things to do if I had something huge like you

Well, if they were pricks about it I would just move to another one of the ISPs with Utopia like Veracity since there is no contract with this FTTH service!

10Mbps can pull more than 4TB per month...

Well yeah, in theory it COULD. I'm just saying I don't know how I'd go about doing that.

As is I use my internet a ton, and download loads of high def movies, and average 150-200GB/month.

Yeah, what a bunch of freaks. It's crazy to think that people would want a better product than they already have.

No, it's crazy that every time we see one of these stories someone posts the same two or three exact comments. It's like those dorks who live to post "FIRST !" every time some game developer makes a post.

That is pretty much the entire point of the story.

Your surprised people want 1 Gbit/s on an internet tech site?

Sheesh, man!
Go outside or get a life!!

Anyone that can afford this and is willing to pay it, is flat out a pickle and has no sense, or life, what so ever, IMO!

And whats wrong with wanting a cheap service like this with great speeds? Also like I said the ONLY reason it isn't every where is because of the bribes our state people took to look the other way

Nothing wrong with wanting it but every time there is a story about fiber there are always posts by people who think they are original and funny.

The posts about how fast you can run through your cap and the post about how you wish X company would come to their home. Neither is funny or whitty anymore. Maybe we should find these people a dead horse to beat.

I disagree.

The absurdity of many of these caps needs to be elaborated on at every chance.

If a company is going to advertise extreme "bandwidth" then they should deliver that product in good faith. Not some gotcha.

Yea, to a bunch of people who already know that caps suck. If you keep bitching on these forums about caps it's going to do absolutely squat...

We have new guests reading these forums everyday. I think you are not aware of the volume this site does.

Which interestingly enough is why it is full of telco shills.
