Re: 1000 Megabits Per Second For As Little As $57 Per Month

Read my post again... The reason it won't work in urban areas is because they are more likely to have the incumbent infrastructure to let Bell/Videotron/Rogers/etc. crush the upstart. That's not the case in rural areas. It has nothing to do with neighbourhoods.

Example: your area is covered by Bell FTTH. The fastest speed you can get from Bell is 175/175 for $99/mth. QuintronFiberCo moves in, offers 1000 Mbps for $60. Great, everybody will switch, right?

Uh oh, Bell just started offering 1000 mbps for $40 in your area. QuintronFiberCo gets no customers, loses a ton of money.

A bit of proper business planning would mitigate those effects pretty quickly, also if a neighbourhood is self-wiring it's unlikely that the incumbents are going to want to spend the money, and operate at a loss indefinitely.

Right, which is why this concept works in rural areas (where Bell is unwilling to deploy modern infrastructure), but does not work in urban areas where Bell's existing infrastructure can already support 1000 Mbps speeds (anywhere they use GPON).
