Re: CNOC speed matching decision due next week
said by Dones:Google Fiber is 1Gbps only between the subscriber and Google's edge equipment. Beyond that, speeds vary wildly and even more so if you go beyond Google's own network.
Holy shit! Makes you wonder how Google is offering 1Gb for $70. That Google fibre sounds sexy.
Not quite the same provisioning burden as aggregated or dedicated links where ISPs and clients usually expect to be able to push links to full speed at any time of day for however long they need.
High speeds are much cheaper to offer when they come with minimal (if any) performance guarantees.
