Re: Globe & Other 2011-44 (UBB) articles

....they call it "CBB" instead, but gussy it up however you want, it's ultimately the same thing.

And the costs [to the users] are ridiculously high, like, 10x higher than they should be.

 
Like Lipstick on a Pig, yeah.

And I'm not against capitalism either, but if the wholesale UBB/CBB cost was 1/10 of what it is now, it would be tolerable for most of us, as well as for the Indie ISPs, I reckon.

And the incumbent providers would STILL be making decent money, albeit moreso from the greater volume of GB of traffic per month which the average (or the Angelo, for that matter) type of consumer would be willing to generate on said providers' networks.

We have only 2 things about which to worry :
(1) That things may never get back to normal
(2) That they already HAVE !

From what I have read here, the CRTC's Speed Matching decision for CNOC's R&V did not go exactly the way that some of us would have liked.

The CBB (the new alias for UBB aka AVP) decision for wholesale circuit capacity prices to Indie ISPs is next.

If the CRTC makes the rates fall significantly for THAT, we will expect some better packages with more GB per month included, maybe even some unlimited on higher speeds, especially on cable.

And TSI may even muster up the courage to turn on Cable service in Cogeco-Land.

Marc commented on the Speed Matching announcement here »CNOC speed matching decision due next week , part way thru that thread, and discussion continued for the next several pages.
