Re: pathetic

As much as I think gigabit symmetric on GFiber is cool, you'll find that even 300M is next to impossible to max, and will be for the next two or three years.

Not sure about you, but last I checked things can change quite a bit in 2 or 3 years.

Yep. $20 says that 24 months from now you still won't need 300M for 99% of web sites. Of course, that's mostly because there will still be people who can't get 50M at that point.

I'll go a step farther and say that over 90% of the population won't have a need for 100 Mbps by the year 2020.

In other words, I'm saying that I believe less than 10% of the population will have any real need for even 100 megs for at least 8 more years.

it kinda sucks when things go good for awhile then they just peter out. Seriously, what stopped the growth of broadband?

Cable and Teleco greed with a splash of incompetent government representation is what stopped broadband.
