Someone's suffering from "imposters syndrome" . . or "posing" as they say . . 👜👛

How can Google be 1/2 the price? 🧶 why would I need to buy from Lumen ? Yikes 🙄

The person that decided this was a good plan, needs to be dispatched post haste . . oh wait, they probably have been.

A massive residential development in Littleton is among the first communities announced to receive Lumen Technologies' new multigig fiber internet.
Creators of Sterling Ranch — a master-planned community on 3,400 acres south of Chatfield State Park in Douglas County — are seeking to make the development into a "smart city."

There were approximately 1,600 occupied homes in the development as of January and plans for 12,000 more. Every home is connected to an underground fiber-optic network, developers said, and they announced this month that Lumen (NYSE: LUMN), formerly CenturyLink, would bring its fiber internet service to the community.
Lumen introduced the service, called Quantum Fiber, last year. It utilizes XGS-PON technology, capable of offering multigig internet speeds.

"Providing our residents with the ultimate in technology has always been our vision for Sterling Ranch, and the introduction of the XGS-PON technology is the latest example of how our goals are continuing to be achieved,” Brock Smethills, president of Sterling Ranch Development Company, said in a statement. "Whether it’s for our many residents who work from home and depend on fast internet speeds and strong connections, managing their utility usage, water and energy conservation, or home safety and security, we are developing a ‘smart city’ at Sterling Ranch.”
When introducing the new fiber service to residential and small business customers in August, Lumen claimed it could deliver up to 8 gigabits per second, promising speeds 40 times faster than the average advertised download speed in the United States.
The rollout of Lumen's 8-gig service started with select residents and small businesses in communities around Denver, Minneapolis and Seattle, the company said in August.

Lumen CEO and President Jeff Storey said during the company's third-quarter earnings call in November that the Quantum Fiber service had expanded to 889,000 subscribers across 16 states. At the time, there were 32 markets where Quantum Fiber was offered, including Aurora, Colorado Springs and Denver, reported Fierce Telecom, a news outlet focusing on the telecommunications industry.
Storey said on the earnings call that the rollout of the service was going slower than anticipated. An update is expected during the company's fourth-quarter earnings call that's scheduled for Feb. 7.
"Let me be clear, we are not yet at the pace of build we expect or want," Storey said in November. "We will continue to ramp our enablements and overcome the supply chain, labor and inflationary constraints we've seen."

The multigig service will be available to residents of Sterling Ranch by the end of 2024, developers said. The 8-gig tier costs $300 per month, while a 3-gig option is priced at $150 per month and the 1-gig service is $65, Fierce Telecom reported. 😏

Google Fiber (Nasdaq: GOOGL) announced plans in November to bring its fiber-to-the-home internet service to residents and small businesses in Lakewood, making the community the first in Colorado to receive the service. Google is offering the option to receive a 1- or 2-gigabit connection, priced at $70 to $100 per month for residents and $100 to $250 per month for businesses.

" Google Fiber recently announced plans to offer 5- and 8-gig service in 2023. Once that's available, 5 gigs will be available to residents for $125 per month and 8 gigs for $150 per month, the company said."
