Users Don't Want Gigabit Internet Speeds, Time Warner Cable Exec Says

"You don't want gigabyte Internet AT OUR PRICES"!
Logically, if their pathetic 10k is as much as Google's hi-speed, then TW hi-speed will be exorbitant.

Well with friends like that at the helm of TWC, who needs enemies? Unfortunately for TWC, they are digging their own graves. Don't they understand unless they have a competitive offering to the first startup that offers Gigabit Internet, TWC is toast?!? Unfortunately, CFOs and technology don't mix. But nobody is buying CFOs. They want technology.

Love seeing the TWC commercial that says come back and see the improvement to their service.
So they admit that people left because of their service. I wouldn't go back until hell freezes over!!

Google's gigabit service at 1024 megs is $70 a month.
TWC is $75 per-a-month at "50 megs" of speed LOL.
Math is fundamental, but it seems to me like TWC is for lack of a better word, "A RIPOFF"
I think I'll wait and pray for Google to come to my town. In the mean time hopefully the rest of internet will be begin catching up. As Micky said to Rocky "We need more speed!! SPEEEED!!"

What he meant to say is that only a sliver of TWC's customer base can afford the outrageous prices you charge due to your complete government approved monopoly.
The GOVERNMENT gave TWC a monopoly. That is why you have no other choice but to use their service. Oh, and you are paying for that too!

do I want better than the prisoner-rationed speeds and download caps I'm getting now? HELL YES.
as others have said, no one wants gigabit internet "at big telcom's prices" and I'm sure anyone with two.5 kids streaming netflix and playing wowcrack all day long during the summer, then yea, gigabit is pretty enticing.
I'm just waiting for the other shoo to drop and TIme Warner or Comcast to start suing municipalities that either get in bed with google or enact their own municiple networks as being "illegally anticpometitive" because you know it's coming.
