Re: I read this last night....
said by Crookshanks:Recent study concluded that the majority were, in fact, happy enough with 3G. said by osravens:
Except then they'll want to build a 5G network, and rip us off for that.
They'll want to? I think you have that backwards, consumers
want better, faster, and more reliable data networks, otherwise there would be zero incentive for a carrier to spend billions of dollars building one.
(No, not going to look it up. It was posted to the front-page news, here, I believe. Feel free to disbelieve it if you wish.)
said by Crookshanks:Yeah, that was SBC's argument against giving CLECs access when they initially wanted to expand their DSL footprint.
...what kinds of regulations do you want to see, and how do you believe they bring prices down without also discouraging investments in network expansion?
We can see how that's worked-out, can't we? Now that they've got their footprint monopoly, they want to discard it and force consumers on to the wireless network for which they whine they need more bandwidth.
