Re: Open Mind
It wouldn't take much money to deply FTTH on a cable network. They can easily do so with as much fiber as they have in the field. They need to replace the last what 900 feet to the customers maybe a little more? And instead of replacing the lines, they can use the same ones and pull the coax out and run the fiber right inside, the same as Buckeye Cable was trying with Owns Corning cable. And if smaller companies are deploying FTTH TWC has no reason why they can not. And may not pay for itself? How about, not having to do tech visits to install service? Ship the STB and be done with it, they could activate the entire house and the ONT remotely, Service calls would be down to basically nothing, You wouldn't have to worry about Joe Blow down the street stealing cable and screwing up the entire plant in that area. More HD, More Internet, real time video to the home using STBs and the new Skype/Asus phones that are coming out. TWC could do it, they just flat out don't want to.
And Google won't kill them. 1 Market of TWC's is nothing for them when they have countless other towns and in some areas entire states of service. And Google won't be expanding anytime soon, if at any.
