Re: Will you switch to Google Fiber?

Let's not beat around the bush, what google has deployed, Verizon would have to completely rip out and replace their current FiOS network with a more expensive active network and IPTV solution.

More expensive?! $23 Billion for FIOS wasn't pocket change for Verizon...

Verizon also just isn't one one small metro area. FiOS is awesome but Google fiber is technically superior. If you deploy Google fiber to a similar size footprint as FiOS it would be even more expensive.

Yes I love my FiOS. But $70 for gigabit. I might just want two fibers to my house. FiOS TV. And Google Internet.

Heh yea I couldn't live without ESPN either so I guess I'd have two fibers as well Did google really not include ESPN? That's dumb.

EDIT: Wow just checked and yea no ESPN, they are that dumb... I guess Google has a lot to learn about the TV business
