Translation:

"There's no demand for 1Gbps at a price point we're willing to sell it at with caps and other limitations in place. Customers are gullible, but not THAT gullible."

And the customers are not stupid either.

Well it's only available in 1 of about 200 hoods they plan to rollout in. It's a fairly low income hood too. Not sure how TWC can determine that based on one hood.

Time Warner is smfart! No body wants 1gbs service when the rest of the nation is locked to monopoly slow speeds and providers are locked to even worse pricing bandwidth scales.

Take it from the horses mouth in the article. They are now providing 5GB capped service with high overages for $5 less/month (after bi-annual price hike, modem rental fee, and modem obsolescence fee). This VALUE is something EVERY customer has asked for and true to their word they will "provide" it to every one of their customers.

We've been BEGGING for this don't you know! We as customers have NEVER requested SPEED with BANDWIDTH to use it???!!

Unfortunately monopolies only listen to one thing: "stfu you have no choice but pay the bill" or live like the Flinstones. They paid big to be allowed to have a monopoly now it's our turn to pay for allowing it.

On top of the fact that those 200 hoods only represent about 1/2 of the KC Metro area. The rest of those areas have not even gotten a chance to sign up yet.
