Re: Google FTW
said by skuv :Exactly. I'm not sure why other people don't seem to get this. Google will lose money on this network which is subsidized by their massive advertising revenues and people will claim that every ISP could do a gigabit for $70/mo. As you stated, at $70/mo, they may never recoup their costs on the physical infrastructure, much less the ongoing costs of getting that bandwidth there.
Google hasn't done anything magical here, they overbuilt a loss leader. It's great promotion for them.
