  • Google Fiber promises connection speeds of up to 100 times faster than the average American's

  • broadband service. But Time Warner Cable does not believe there is a viable amount of consumer

  • interest to justify offering that sort of connectivity to its customers.

  • At the Morgan Stanley Technology Conference, Time Warner Cable's Chief Financial Officer

  • Irene Esteves said, "We just don't see the need of delivering that to consumers."

  • The Google Fiber experiment began in November of last year when the company began rolling

  • out the service in select neighborhoods in my hometown of Kansas City.

  • Though Google Fiber promises connectivity of up to 1 Gps, actual speeds of 600-700 Mbps

  • were reported in some areas, which is still much faster than average broadband speeds.

  • Seemingly content to maintain the status quo of internet connectivity, Esteves confirmed

  • that the provider has little interest in delivering Google Fiber level speeds to its consumers

  • due to a scarcity of demand when she said, "We're in the business of delivering what

  • consumers want, and to stay a little ahead of what we think they will want."

  • The top comment on this IGN article seems to show a lot of people that disagree with

  • Esteves.
