Re: Google Fiber
My last post was in response to daddyg_76266's suggestion that 1.5/386k should be $5/month.
I have no issue with Google Fiber, and in fact openly embrace it. I think my opinions relate to nationwide expectations of consumers changing because of what Google's offering. I think it's selfish view. Just because something is one speed or one price in a certain place, doesn't mean it should or can be the new standard for other providers to follow everywhere else. If 99% of providers offered 1.5/386k for free, it doesn't make the 1% charging whatever they charge any less worth it. It simply means in certain places with certain companies there are different offerings. Frequently there are trade-offs. Not always though. I'm just saying it's a bit ridiculous to suggest 24/7 internet access for the low-tier speed should be the price of a McDonald's combo meal.
