We’re all happy with our sub 70Mbps service, but I answered a Cuckoo survey about future speeds upto 1Gbps. Obviously you can download huge files quickly and have multiple 4K steams at once - put would you want to be tied into paying for bandwidth you rarely use?
Cloud pricing model anyone?
- Perhaps pay a set monthly fee for a minimum service. PAYG for going over, only when you want/request/use the extra bandwidth (up to a financial limit per month).
- Whenever local capacity becomes used up, priority goes to those who’ve paid monthly eg everyone pays for 68Mbps, so everyone treated equally on that. Customers paying for guaranteed eg 250Mbps get priority up to that. Then spare capacity allocated first come first served/shared equally on top of monthly allowance.
- Of course, the local infrastructure up to the pipe is somewhat out of Cuckoo’s control, and can’t share demand between different geographies to even out the load over the day. But if they are considering 1000Mbps (1Gbps), that’s a shed load of 4K streaming etc. per local Exchange.
What do you think as a pricing model?
