Re: Competition is good!!
I join you all to agree on hybrid model as an option to address issues that are in discussion. Ultimately service providers need to epand their offerings to include hybrid s an option for consumers to choose from.

Re: Consumers
I disagree--it seems to me that they need to nurture customers to sustain themselves for the long-term.

Re: Competition is good!!
@ariella, @@mhhf1ve. I have always said that one-size does not fit all. You have to have multiple options to meet needs. A hybrid solution is the perfect answer to solve the problem. I agree. Moe companies should offer hybrid solutions.

Consumers
Saving consumers money is something that most companies no longer care about. They all focused on profit and paying their CEO millions while consumers continue to pay more for sub-par service. I am happy the LEO satellites will save consumers money and provide access to rural regions which desparately need to be connected.

Competition
This is so exciting. I am happy to see other companies launch in the Broadband industry. Consumers deserve competition. We pay too much for broadband service that is not great.

Re: Competition is good!!
While competition will usually bring prices down, I'm skeptical if Amazon and SpaceX technologies "could generate consumer savings of more than $30 billion per year. " Assuming those providers can operate at similar costs as current land based internet, it may be that their costs will be higher for several years more and would demand a loss leader situation to compete.

There is no choice but a hybrid solution--especially as we have all deliberated how 50% of the World continues to be "not digitzied".

Re: Competition is good!!
I'm sure there are some next-gen satellite companies that have... I vaguely remember there was a LEO satellite company that was pitching a VPN service for private enterprises that used fixed wireless for more reliable "last mile" connections...

Re: Competition is good!!
@mhhf1ve that's a good idea. I wonder why the companies haven't thought to offer a hybrid package like that.

Wi-Fi is the foundation of the connected home for consumers; yet, it’s often a source of frustration. With the imminent release of the new Wi-Fi 6 standard – combined with a strong Managed Wi-Fi offer – service providers can reverse subscriber frustration while tapping into new revenue streams.
