Re: push it to the coasts. Yes it is AT&T it used to be the SBC area Southwestern Bell. And they do have U-verse and LOTS of it. and TWC is HUGE there. Besides they also hare Surewest cable/internet. So yah.
Data, your Lovely Gbps internet speeds will do NOTHING for Google if they are competing with Time Warner, Uverse, DirecTV, and Dishnetwork. Unfortunately for you, and all the other speed addicts on this website, the TV service is what sells it. Verizon knows this first hand, because in areas that they dont have Video Franchises, their Fios internet doesnt sell very good.
So, in KC, where Google will be competing with those major TV carriers, they will be lucky to have a 20% adoption rate. To make things even worse for Google, the people who are hooked up with DTV or Dish, will take the 7 years of free 5Mbps internet ! Major, MAJOR loss for Google.
Im sure you understand, a $300 "construction" fee, to bring a customer 7 years of 5 Mbps service, will be a ridiculous loss for Google. I could see the satellite providers absorbing that fee for their customers !
Google has ZERO chance unless they restructure their entire plan. Unless they feel they are a charity and will write all this off as a donation.
I'm not a speed addict or a fan of Google as you keep stating.
You also think Google does not make money on Android so it is hard to take you serious.
I live in KC and people are serious about getting Google fiber. I really can't imagine how this won't make as much money as TW or ATT.
I never metioned Android at all. Im talking about the Google FTTP service itself.
You mean you don't want to claim android makes no money!
Fair enough, my mistake. Don't blame you for not touching that one.
Like I said, you can battle NW all you like regarding Android. I have a flip dumbphone, and I intend to keep it until it dies. So Im no expert on smartphone OS's

Oh no, you mean 1gbs Google Fiber with blu ray quality tv will have to compete against overpriced slow ass uverse and overpriced time warner?? What ever will they do?
Blu-ray quality TV. Hmm. You think all the TV stations in the world will start to broadcast 1080p, for Google serving 1 city. Want to make a bet?
