How bad is TAC that this is actually appealing? I have 25/4 on Comcast, and it's soon going to 50/10, leaving anything DSL can do in the DUST.
TAC [sic] blows this offer away, generally, but for some narrow circumstances, Fusion wins, and for some, going with the little guy (Sonic) is important, while others just hate CableCo regardless. Some day, theoretically, our Fusion services will be supplanted by Sonic FTTH. We'll see.
Its great to have any alternative to AT&T or cable; Fusion is viable for some. But as you've noted, Cable can easily double their speed, and they will. TWC upped download speeds 50% this year while keeping rates flat (absent the stupid modem fee, which Sonic and DSLX mimic in their own way).
I think Sonic seriously mis-stepped by requiring dialtone and the modem rental, instead of offering up a two-pair naked service pushing 40M. But they can only do so much - they may be focusing their resources on near-term FTTH.
