Android v Apple, Ford v Chevy, PC v Mac, the great thing about competition in a free market environment is the strong always survive while the weak is left to die. Though it may sound cruel it actually makes for a better product/service experience for the customer at a better price. One of the good things about continuing innovation is that it forces the competition to step up their game or risk being swallowed up or dead and we are seeing that with companies like Blackberry, Radio Shack, and other companies that were the hottest name at one time and are now a distant memory. Two weeks ago we discussed Google Fiber and its continuing expansion and now it has caused other companies like AT&T to increase their speeds (adopting giga fiber) while matching the price of what Google is offering in Kansas City. This is good for customers across the nation with AT&T U-Verse, especially in cities that Google have expanded coverage, because it forces the competition to provide what customers want which is more at a reasonable price. Though I expect the roll out to be slow and steady it is a step in the right direction. Here is hoping we continue seeing Google Fiber change the landscape for customers across the nation.
