If they are willing to offer 1gbps symmetrical connections to homes for the same price Google is, then demand would be overwhelming.
Nope. The price is too high, regardless of speed.
Google's $70+/month is beyond the desired reach of majority public. They simply aren't interested or willing to pay that much.
(I count myself among that crowd, though we've paid much more in the past, and I *am* willing and able to pay whatever amount is necessary to obtain a given level of service - we just don't need FTTH speeds.)
The price is too high? for people like you there's a FREE version.
