Re: Some ask why people choose cable over Fios This suggests that Google Fiber may not do so well in KC - there is no evidence to date to indicate they've "innovated" any significant cost-savings that would result in lower monthly costs. They're going to be in for a big surprise if they think Mom is going to spend $70/month for internet.
Likewise for Sonic, though they appear to be cherry-picking their first FTTH zones to assure uptake. When they move beyond the dotcom geek households, they'd better be prepared to offer an "economy tier".
I would think not having a large workforce and also not having to run two networks to the same house would help out there some elray.
