which is why you would want to offer it at a price point that is low enough to make sharing unnecessary.
said by kontos:They can, the question is if they can build out such a network with decent contention ratios while still making money. One suspects the contention ratios are probably fairly high, given the fact that very few households will use even a fraction of this bandwidth on a sustained basis. It will be interesting to see how the network holds up if a mainstream 'killer app' appears that actually uses this kind of bandwidth.
The real question is if Google can operate a network with those speeds and at least break even at that price-point. I'm skeptical, but Google has said that they want to prove it can be done.

said by Crookshanks:$0.99 a song isn't really cheap. For one song, it seems like a small sum, but it adds up fast. Especially when you plot the amount of music the average teenager can consume vs. their income.

$0.10 a song, that might do something.
