Re: Just give me fast FIOS! try not to be so ignorant...
Your talking to me?
Who the hell needs a 1gbs connection?
People are still on >3mbps in the country.
If the demand is there in their footprint they said they would provide it.
You don't build a house, install all the upgrades and then say to the person who buys the house "well it's there if you want it"
I work for Verizon as a craftperson, so I think I know a little about this.
Re: Just give me fast FIOS! Oh ok, now your statements make more sense. At first I thought you were just trolling by trying to raise arguments that make no sense.
said by pittpete1:No they wont. You know it. I know it. To say otherwise is being willfully ignorant. If they (Verizon) were able to provide 1gb symmetrical connections to homes, they would attach a price tag so ungodly high that nobody would ever purchase it. Then they would simply say "Well, we offered it, and nobody wants it therefore there is no demand".
If the demand is there they'll provide it.
I could try to sell my Honda Civic for $7 million, and when nobody buys, it go around saying there is no demand for a Honda.
| People who have different needs than you need a 1gbps connection. Don't like it? Don't speak for others, speak for yourself. If you want to speak about "needs" go back to using dialup.|
Verizon stopped their FiOS expansion, despite there being large amounts of demand, because the shareholders wanted to see a return on their shares.
| || working for verizon makes you defending verizon in this post even more questionable. By the way, I'm the Verizon CEO! Clearly, this must be just as factual of a statement and cannot be refuted. *crosses arms*|
Yes, people are still on greater than 3 megabits per second. That's what we are in 2013. Yes, a few people are on less than 3 megabits per second in 2013. None of them are signed up with Verizon either, that's for damn sure. Just because people live rural doesn't mean they're stuck with ISDN speeds anymore - satellite is a lot faster than that. Your implied message is not only inaccurate, but a lie straight up. Satellite's problem is still speed and usage cap, but it's not dialup speeds anymore for those who can afford it.
go away ignorant troll.
