Re: Why doesn't TPIA include DOCSIS 3?
said by nitzguy:I think the core of the problem is cost. Once Start is measuring usage in The Red Zone, I think we'll probably see faster speeds. Until then, they just can't afford to let a customer saturate a 60 or 75mbit connection, that customer would cost the ISP ~$1000/month! Ya, that does translate into a capacity thing too, but I think the cost is the primary issue.
The reason why TPIAs like Start don't offer the faster service is a sheer capacity issue. They probably don't have the capacity to be able to offer those kinds of speeds without some huge pipe between Rogers (or what they call the Red network) and Start themselves...
That said, CIK Telecom does advertise a 75mbit package. I don't know anybody who has it, I don't know if I believe them, but it is listed on their website...
