said by gunther_01:You didnt even read the articles, or any of my post, did you? I clearly stated how much charter is charging per GB, and also provided articles that explain(in great details, with sources) how much ISPs are paying per GB of data transferred, which includes everything from lines to labor. Maybe you should re-read my post instead of just spouting no info relevant to any of my claims. You obviously have no logical arguments to dispute anything I have said, but instead go on a personal attack. I believe that is called an Ad-hominem(see picture), an attempt to distract from the fact that you have no arguments to refute my central points. Industry shills at their best. Whats next, name calling? Again, you ignored my question: what would you do if gas companies started charging 1000% for gas just because they could, and with no ties to real world costs.
Please read my post again, and tell me if $5K a month for 100Mb equals your figures... The crap you are reading is just crap. But it does figure IMO. Once you have something, then people want to Bitch about it being to costly, and or make up reasons why they shouldn't have to pay for it. You won;'t be happy unless its $20 a month for unlimited guaranteed bandwidth.
Again, you have NO idea. Once you run an ISP, then talk to me.
I didn't need to read them, but I just did. The first one is blatently wrong in the first paragraph, so I stopped. The second, while giving good examples of cost and such, is NOT a typical ISP wireline system. Most cable co's can't move terabytes of data internally. DRAMATICALLY changing the priceing per GB and customer. The third is wrong as well, which includes at the bottom a member of an ISP association claiming otherwise aso.
Again, if you own and run an ISP (like I do) please don't be a troll with unfounded data, blog posts from people who also don't know a thing, and then try to turn it in to some personal battle because you "think" you do. So. Please tell me what a business class T-1 costs you. Or what you can get a business class, guaranteed bandwidth with no caps at for 100Meg?? Then please let us all know how much it costs. Then, and only then, will you have something to even remotely complain about. Trust me when I tell you, you won't like the numbers. Of course a business class cable modem connection isn't the same as a guaranteed business class, resellable connection. Which is what you actually need according to your claims of "having" to have it for work. It costs me $5k a MONTH Bud. That is of course out here in the boonies, and is much lower in metro areas. But that is mainly because you can tie in to a decent network pretty easily, and bandwidth is more accessible. Or at least to a tie in point where there are more options. Lets also keep in mind that a residintial connection is a shared non-guaranteed connection.

He runs a freakin' ISP bucko... what Charter is charged per ISP is none of your concern. It's what the market will accept. The value of that line is fine.. and no, I'm not a shill. (By the way, funny you tell me to not name call on your first message, but right out the bat you already called me a shill because my point, which is actually an intelligent one, doesn't agree with yours. You've got two people with industry AND business experience giving you hands on experience and YOU still sit here acting like mr. know it all.
I want to pay $5.00 for a 24 case of coke still, and I feel that the cost PER can of coke THEY pay is FAR less than what I'm charged.. perhaps Coca Cola needs to drop their prices too.. SCREW the fact that fuel costs have risen and that other expenses have gone up.. I don't care.. all those OTHER Expenses don't matter to me, the consumer, because *I* am only concerned about the price they pay for the ingredients that go into MY can of coke!
No need to post stupid graphics about what someone else may or may not say.. base your arguments on something factual and maybe you won't be blasted for it.
