And have more layoffs. I'm so glad I got out before that sh*thole company bought directv.Their plan is to shift DTV to the rural areas and have DTV and DTV NOW have the same look and feel. Maybe even eventually replace DTV in the rural areas with DTV NOW using 5g? AT&T has talked about running fiber to a 5g tower then having a 5g radio on the roof. AT&T sees this as saving costs on truck rolls, installing the dish and the boxes.
Just curious Claude, How drastic did the price change frommone to the next ... mainly the 18 mg to 105 and up.I think we are 10-15 years away.
#1 every home in America that has a traditional home phone ran on copper lines will need to be transitioned fiber.
Just the cost to maintain the existing copper network is getting out of hand. Going to fiber optic cable makes sense from a customer service stand point and on maintained.
2) any areas not converted to fiber will be served by 5G
20 years ago the best I could get at my house was 768 DSL. Thought that was the best until Comcast started offering 6 meg internet.
Uverse came along offered 18 meg and I thought that was the bomb.
Comcast came back and offered 105 meg and I thought I was cooking with gas.
Then another company called WOW came by and offered 300 meg. I jumped on that, and a few months later they bumped it to 600 meg.
Thought that was good, until AT&T came a knocking and sold me 1 Gig via fiber.
Now I hear WOW and Comcast are going to 1 gig soon in my area.
3 gig internet providers in my backyard !
Never thought that would be possible.
Then I hear AT&T is wiring the rest of my area with fiber.
It’s coming, slowly but to everyone p
