Ongoing Broadband Deception – Part-2

Tags: , , , , , ,


On the other hand, Cablevision is advertising its newly introduced DOCSIS 3.0–based 100-Mbps, 99USD-a-month broadband service. It even captured attention of most of the major national media which propagated it as the fastest cable all over the country. This makes public to believe it is the "fastest broadband available in the country." Yes, Cablevision’s service is, at present, double in speed as Verizon FiOS’s current fattest residential pipe whereas, Verizon’s rates are high for they charge a big amount of 144-USD a month to provide just 50-Mbps download speed.

 

However, Cablevision’s newly introduced 100-Mbps service is just a carrot to direct public to their other more low-priced, non-DOCSIS 3.0-based (and hence slower) packages.

Even as hardly anybody is actually giving 144-USD each month for Verizon’s 50 Mbps (an inexpensive, though slower, FiOS offerings are open), no ordinary person will give about 100-USD for home broadband service without speed. It seems to be a superb marketing ploy. These super-high speeds will spread nationwide, but only a small number of prosperous vendees will pay for them. Those consumers will unknowingly act as foot soldiers in Cablevision’s exertions to fight FiOS in the cheap broadband world.

Ongoing Broadband Deception – Part-1

There is something unusual going on in the online broadband world. Fear, manipulation, and deceptive showing of realities are in action—all of these things are meant to attract rival’s customers, either by creating doubts in their minds about the honesty of their existing suppliers or by deceiving them by making them to think that they’ve reached a big deal.

One day when I was preparing my lunch, I saw a new Cablevision Optimum Online commercial. I just stopped and started watching and noticed that it was not one of those tricky ones, with the young man singing the phone number. Nor was it among the attractively created ones that picture people walking around with multimedia system taking on all over their bodies. They are said to be grist for making a better life through broadband utilization, but I guess they are the foundation for a horror movie. Anyhow that commercial was different.
