That's your opinion. The companies making more than $100 billion
from this "wasted" bandwidth may not agree.
Back to square one goes Craig. It's the content that sells, Craig, *not* the
fact that they are using technology from last century.
But content is moving behind pay walls,
Some might be, but this has NOTHING to do with what a standard
receiver or STB needs to look like, or how programs are delivered.
It's another topic entirely.
Exactly so please stay on subject.
Craig, genius, can you read that short thread and see who keeps veering off
topic? This is your habit, after all.
Half of those households have access to 25/3 broadband, just like you.
What's this point you keep wandering around about, Craig? If 19% of households
has broadband at even less than 25 Mb/s, that still works for streaming. If all
of that 19% do want 25 Mb/s or more, then that's not so hard to provide (just
eliminate the wasteful broadcasts). Can you see how you get completely lost in
your circular arguments? Give it up, Craig.
As for those who cannot access broadband, virtually all can access
a DBS service;
Nonsense. People need broadband for more than just watching TV. And the DBS
companies are acutely aware of this, branching out into Internet services. So
rural broadband is a big deal. It can and is being provided using various
methods, including satellite broadband, but it's the place where easy fixes are
Really. Building rural broadband networks is cheaper than the DBS
service that already exists?
As Craig belabors the most obtuse points again. See my previous answer, which
should have been obvious to you all along.
If prices are too high, Title II regulation is not going to help.
That's also false. An excess of greed can only work against these companies,
Craig. And perhaps encourage competition from wireless providers.
