Verizon had been GURU as ISP for several years now. The have the cutting edge bandwidth to teet up most of the customer’s requirements. Verizon decided to respond to Cablevision’s new limited 101Mbps service, and, well, it’s a bit contradictory.
Essentially, Verizon argues that Cablevision is trying to pump all this bandwidth through their crappy cable infrastructure, and it won’t hold up, with bandwidth hogs lowering everybody else’s speeds. Furthermore, the true speeds will be slower once users have to deal with the speeds of the servers they’re trying to access. Oh, and also, nobody wants such high speeds.
I have worked with Verizon for 2 years, and I know their potential, If they come up with some words, Take my word, they`ll meet it. Infact, I believe me Verizon can happily giveout 1GBPS to every resident of US still have plenty of it left out for rest of the world… just kidding 😉
But then they start bragging about how fast their service is. But wait, I thought no one wanted fast speeds and, in any case, fast speeds were impossible to actually get thanks to slow servers? Which is it?
The fact of the matter is this: Cablevision is offering higher speeds at lower prices than you, Verizon. You can make your BS contradictory arguments all you want, but no one is going to pay you much mind. Offer up higher speeds at lower prices. That is what people will notice.
Bring on the battle of the high-speed providers, I say and we should see price falls. I’m waiting for verizon to bang Indian broadband life. Give us 10mbps to every home in india at cheaper deals. Come fight with airtel.
