Investments?

"...The effects of well-designed [usage-based pricing] plans on consumers are likely to be beneficial, as are the effects of UBP on investments in the broadband infrastructure."
What investments? Is this man high?

Cable companies have invested billions per year on infrastructure upgrades in order to deliver higher speeds.

High Speeds per the companies much like how we the consumers "benefit" from ridiculous prices of packages and shady connections?

The companies invest what they can to stay as profitable as ever....and no, not everyone will screw over their consumers to make every last dime possible.

And please spare me the "That is Capitalism" talk when the companies spend millions in DC re-writing their laws to end any and all competition.

If they have,then where did they deploy this stuff?They say they did it in Canada too but there were no upgrades unless you count wireless upgrades also but that does not benefit the cable subscriber,only the people who can afford the 100 a month for low lte speeds.Just a scam media release to "think" your getting more for the increase in prices as usual
