Re: Paying More for Fiber
Agreed. Value-added options are nice too. It would be great if more building owners thought this way about internet access.

Huawei
I think the U.S. should have implemented a phase approach to removing Huawei equipment as well as alternatives if companies cannot replace the equipment. I am not surprised if the U.S. is violating World Trade Rules, they have been violating rules since the last presidential election in 2016.

Chairman Pai is changing his position because of the negative comments he received. I wonder what would happen if he did not get push back. How far would he have gone?

Re: Paying More for Fiber
This is an interesting debate--you all need to realize that cable companies normally have exclusive contractrs with cities--but there needs to be equity--unless yes you are in a commerical building.

Re: Paying More for Fiber
It's becoming increasingly popular in my area to have neighborhood associations even for single family homes and I don't get it. Why would you want a governing body to tell you what cable you can have and what color your house should be?

Re: Paying More for Fiber
Apartment dwellers have no choice in many of the services for their building, being at the mercy of the owner or condo association. But, even so one would presume or at least hope that the decision makers would select a "best choice" for the residents.

Re: Paying More for Fiber
I have only heard bad things about apartment connections. You have no choice in service provider AND the speeds tend to be slower.

Re: Under the Sea
Noting that CenturyLink is placing "a network access point and on one of the highest points in a "500-year flood zone" -- a key concern in often waterlogged Miami," one might wonder if land values will no longer put a premium on ocean side real estate and go for higher land which in Miami might only be 15 feet about current sea level.

Under the Sea
Hope CenturyLink's new facility works out, considering it is putting it in a "500-year flood zone." But if it does work, it will be great for Latin America, in particular.
