Re: Makes one wonder.. I would expect that an ISP would actually have a different usage pattern than a medical office but whatever. If your point is that EPB is discouraging competitors, then I will have trouble disagreeing with you. Presumably they are acting within the law and probably still more honorably than AT&T does.
As far as discouraging competitors goes, considering how long it often takes for a community to get a muni fiber network off the ground, any company wanting to compete will have an ample opportunity to get in there first. There are plenty of opportunities for a company to do this, and I'm sure most communities would welcome having another player in the market as opposed to having to wire themselves. It just takes a company with the vision to make it happen and the resources and competence to pull it off.

No. In my example 25Mb @ 95th percentile is the same amount of bandwidth no matter who the end user is.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
