Broadstripe – Missing the Mark

BizJournal has a press release for some new offerings from Broadstripe. They are offering “lite” packages for people who only need a little bit of calling or the internet… To me this looks like over charging for degraded service.

Broadstripe, you need to tier your service like Comcast. Provide an internet only option at a competitive price. I know you don’t have to do this, since you don’t directly compete with anyone… Nice having a monopoly eh?

Offer 12Mbps download and 2Mbps upload for ~$45 a month. Make sure your network can support those speeds. I understand cable internet is a shared medium and during high usage speed degrades… Just don’t over saturate your network and improve your backbone connections.

You guys are the only provider that “offers” high speed internet access in my neighborhood. However, with my 30 day experience, I never ever saw the advertised speeds.

Basically, come on… Step up to the plate. Don’t dink around with small market budget users.
