Re: CNOC speed matching decision due next week

$8k would be a disappointment, but it would still be an improvement. Some ISPs reported being borderline or even a bit unprofitable at the previous rate ($22k for Bell, I believe it was?), so dropping that to $8k should mean that they can be profitable at their current pricing, perhaps even with a modest price drop. It also means that they can introduce those high-speed packages they've been holding out on (like 50/10), since they'll at least have a final CBB rate to base the business case on.

Holding out on 50/10? It just came out. Is there even a wholesale tariff filed for the speed tier? It's more like offering 25/10 for a lot of the IISPs or making it profitable for the few that do now.

Yes, it was filed already - January 28, 2013.

Even at $8k, a 50/10 unlimited service would likely be difficult to offer. Add that to the traffic management nightmare of trying to balance a bunch of 1G AHSSPI links.
