If you simply double the numbers you are throwing at me, it would be much closer to the situation today, but not for long going forward. The recession is coming to an end, expect to see rapid growth in high-speed broadband availability.
Incorrect. Again. You can easily unearth the subscription (and comprehensive speed) trends of ALL ISP's and service methodologies and see that it hasn't NEARLY doubled in the last two years. That's a flat-out lie. No more than a 10% fluctuation...at most. As for breaking out the ISP and national economic crystal balls, sure, whatever helps you sleep at night, but AGAIN, it's all irrelevant as the dialog revolves around the NOW.
Predictably you have attempted to thwart valid data under the guise of "well, things have changed dramatically in the last 18-24 months" when that's simply not the case...and no you cannot prove otherwise (again, re the MEDIAN speeds americans see). Your OWN link earlier shows that we're talking about a couple hundred thousand subscriber changes ANNUALLY, NATION WIDE.
I won't continue this any further...to the glee of all, I'm sure. You can have the last word, lol. I'm 100% certain it will not validate your assertions anymore than the patent lies, irrelevant "averages" and misinformation littered above.
The fact that you continue to post "average" anything speaks VOLUMES as to your...well, never mind.
