500gig.... on a 100meg line... do these guys even know what the internet is for? It's for getting stuffs, but at these ratios your fancy fiber will be like having a Ferrari in the garage that you only drive once a month.
Fek sakes. Stop upping the speed with no real way to use that speed to it's full capacity. Work on getting everyone 4-10 meg lines and offering quality service.
We saw this cr4p back in the days of ISDN and the ignorant and greedy way of things STILL hasn't changed 25 years later... Amazing.
Wondering the same thing, except all you should be paying for is your bandwidth/throughput.
Dark fibre should become a thing and soon. It should be installed and maintained by the local municipality (read: our tax pays for the infrastructure) or some other provider that provides ONLY fibre infrastructure and the ISP should be your bloody choice (read: they should fight for the privilege of being used by customers).
And the ISPs should pay a percentage to the fibre provider for its maintenance and upkeep.
