Re: TWC Peering There is no way to figure out congestion but here is who they peer with.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
AWS Spectrum It's too bad the cable companies decided to not enter the cellular market.
Re: AWS Spectrum
said by atcotr :It would be too big of an investment. Plus, there are huge regions cable does not reach, where the POTS system does. And where there is a CO, its a lot easier for a telco company to put up a cell tower or two, and the cell companies lease each-others infrastructure.
It's too bad the cable companies decided to not enter the cellular market.
For a new company to enter that market, with 4 major competitors (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon) and several smaller ones mostly leveraging off the infrastructure of the big 4, there isn't a lot of room to build a brand new network from scratch, and still make a profit.
