care to chime in?
I pay for spectrum internet only. It’s still a pretty decent deal value wise, considering it’s enough bandwidth for everyone in the house to run some kind of streaming device all month for $70.
Also, I would imagine fiber has a massive advantage in terms of long term viability and bandwidth headroom. Let's say 5g eventually reaches something like 2 Gbps, which is really generous, afaik. Any fiber cable will handle many times that bandwidth, as long as you have the supporting hardware, which will be cheap relative to the process of laying all that cable initially. So fiber is likely much more future proof.
True. But that is also assuming 5G is the end all, be all. Whereas in fact there will be 6G, 7G, 8G, etc. going forward.

Number one is, predictably, Japan, where the average broadband speed is 60mbps and they pay $0.27 per 1mbps. We, in comparison, average 4.8mbps and pay $3.33 per 1mbps, putting us at #15.
Lol, the Japanese would pay about $11/month for 40mbps.
SKULL! FUCK! COMCAST!
Whoever equates anything "municipal" with "good" needs their heads checked.

And when municipal is a monopoly it's going to be better why?
DASKAA saysAnd when municipal is a monopoly it's going to be better why? In this case municipal is the underdog competing to provide the service. There was a vote, and at that level, I do believe the vote was meaningful, so the citizens had a choice. Not the best choice, but better than Comcast and lump it.
So it boils down to competition. If the municipal service will be competing with Comcast there is hope it will be better. But if Comcast pulls out it will deteriorate to something even worse. Because nothing municipal is ever better than private (in my experience).
