FAQ: Isn't it true that the physical cable infrastructure is nearly at capacity and a significant amount of money will have to be spent in the next few years to upgrade it?

Aug 03, 2010

According to semo.net:
The cost to increase capacity from the current 150 Mb to 300 Mb should be a one-time cost of less than $50,000 and possible only $20,000. If the books of the Internet portion were separated from the TV income/expenses then I believe it could easily be shown that the Internet side is profiting and can absorb that cost. Remember, making the network better is better for the citizens. Making the prices cheaper by competition is better for the citizens. City Cable should not run it’s network as a business. It should run the network as a government which provides infrastructure for citizens lives to be better.

We welcome a response from the City.
