with 2 companies already committed to plunking down millions of dollars on a network build.. why not pick another geography that has a willing municipal government?!?
millions of people in the NORTHEAST getting abused by the likes of Comcast, Cablevision and Verizon would trade certain vital organs to get gigabit speeds dirt cheap. I'll just pay the $65 a month, thanks. if they could make it happen before the middle of 2015, I'd even pay the Verizon ETF for the contract.
Because Grande already has infrastructure in Texas, and that's all they serve, and as an overbuilder they're basically fighting for their lives here.
Also, "willing municipal government"? I don't think NYC qualifies.
